Tweaked iOS Will Prevent Accidental Touches Due To iPad Mini’s Thinner Bezel

Unlike the full-sized iPad, Apple’s iPad mini comes with thinner bezels in portrait mode.

Jony Ive, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Design explains in this iPad mini promo video that they felt strongly that 7.9-inches was exactly the right display size, but it became clear to them that they had to reduce the width of the borders.

But you don’t have to worry about accidentally touching the screen due to the thinner bezel as folks at The Next Web have spotted that Apple has tweaked the iOS to prevent it.

Apple has mentioned the changes it had to make to iOS for the thinner bezel on iPad mini’s design webpage.

Rethinking the screen meant we also had to rethink the software behind it. iPad mini intelligently recognizes whether your thumb is simply resting on the display or whether you’re intentionally interacting with it. It’s the kind of detail you’ll notice — by not noticing it. And it’s a great example of how Apple hardware and software work together to give you the best experience possible.

It remains to be seen if iPad mini will come pre-installed with iOS 6 or iOS 6.0.1 that is currently being tested by carriers and rumored to be released in coming weeks.

    i want… i want like I’ve never wanted anything before… mini is perfect… iPad is too big for us smaller people, and since I use mine for documentation and only the occasional other app, it would be much more beneficial and easier to carry…

    Just OMG I want it…. I’m going to start selling random stuff online to get it as a xmas present, for me, by me :)
