  • Patent number: 10969945
    Abstract: An electronic device with a display, touch-sensitive surface and one or more sensors to detect intensity of contacts with the touch-sensitive surface displays a virtual keyboard, and outputs characters corresponding to respective keys in the virtual keyboard when character-output criteria are met. While displaying an autocorrect user interface for changing a string of characters to a modified string of characters, the device detects an autocorrect input that includes an increase in intensity of a contact above a first intensity threshold while a focus selector is over a respective user interface element in the autocorrect user interface, and then either changes the string of characters to the modified string of characters, or maintains the string or characters, depending on whether the contact has an intensity that meets first predefined criteria with respect to the first intensity threshold and a second intensity threshold that is higher than the first intensity threshold.

  • Patent number: 10928782
    Abstract: System and techniques for a virtual detent bezel device are described herein, a configuration that specifies a detent pattern and an output pattern corresponding to the detent pattern may be received receiving by the virtual detent bezel device. A physical portion of the virtual detent bezel device may sense a rotational action of a user interacting with a physical portion of the virtual detent bezel device. The rotational action may be compared to a present rotational position to determine a rotational change. The rotational change may be thresholded against the detent pattern to determine that a detent is crossed. A haptic feedback device may be activated in response to determining that the detent is crossed. A portion of the output pattern that corresponds to the detent that is crossed may be output by the virtual detent bezel device.

  • Patent number: 10891018
    Abstract: A set of elements, such as, for example, a path, a directory list, a playlist, and a listing of information associated with a file or a song, may be truncated so that a partial set may be generated and displayed. The truncation may be performed in an intelligent manner to produce a meaningful truncated portion. Such a partial set may be beneficial when the space allotted for display of the set is small to begin with or is reduced. In one implementation, a display size of a set is compared with a size of a display area. A data element is selected based on the comparison, and a display space size is determined for the selected data element. A truncated, yet meaningful, portion is determined for the selected data element, the portion fitting within the display space size.
