  • Publication number: 20190146643
    Abstract: An application launching user interface that includes a plurality of application icons for launching corresponding applications is displayed. A first touch input is detected on a first application icon of the plurality of application icons. The first application icon is for launching a first application that is associated with one or more corresponding quick actions. If the first touch input meets one or more application-launch criteria which require that the first touch input has ended without having met a first input threshold, the first application is launched in response to the first touch input. If the first touch input meets one or more quick-action-display criteria which require that the first touch input meets the first input threshold, one or more quick action objects associated with the first application are concurrently displayed along with the first application icon without launching the first application, in response to the first touch input.

  • Publication number: 20190138103
    Abstract: An application-independent module associates a first type of event with a first tactile output and a distinct second type of event with a different second tactile output. An electronic device receives and generates a response to first information from a first application by generating the first tactile output using one or more tactile output generators if the first information corresponds to an application event of the first type; and generating the second tactile output using the one or more tactile output generators if the first information corresponds to an application event of the second type. The electronic device receives and generates a response to second information from a distinct second application by generating the first tactile output if the second information corresponds to an application event of the first type; and generating the second tactile output if the second information corresponds to an application event of the second type.

  • Patent number: 10276000
    Abstract: An electronic device detects a first increase in a characteristic intensity of a contact on a touch-sensitive surface, and in response the device produces a first tactile output that has a first tactile output profile. The first tactile output profile includes an output parameter that varies in accordance with a proximity of the characteristic intensity of the contact to meeting a first intensity criteria. While producing the tactile output that has the first tactile output profile, the device detects a second increase in the characteristic intensity of the contact. In response to detecting the second increase in the characteristic intensity, in accordance with a determination that the characteristic intensity meets the first intensity criteria, the device produces a second tactile output that has a second tactile output profile that is different from the first tactile output profile.

  • Patent number: 10236760
    Abstract: In an embodiment, an actuator or circuit includes elements moveably coupled via bearings positioned between curved grooves. The bearings and the curves may exert a restorative force to return the elements to an original position after movement and may be spherical, cubic, cylindrical, and/or include gears that interact with groove gears. In some embodiments, an electrical coil may be coplanar with a surface of an element and a hard magnet may be positioned in the center and be polarized to stabilize or destabilize the element with respect to another element. In various embodiments, a magnetic circuit includes an element with an electrical coil wrapped in multiple directions around the element. In some embodiments, an actuator includes attraction elements and exertion of force causes an element to approach, contact, and/or magnetically attach to one of the attraction elements.

  • Patent number: 10228765
    Abstract: An electronic device: while displaying a user interface, detects an input sequence that includes detecting an increase in a characteristic intensity of a contact on a home button. In response, the device determines whether the increase is above a first intensity threshold and whether a change in the characteristic intensity proximate to a time when the characteristic intensity increases above the first intensity threshold has a first or a second value for an intensity-change metric. If the increase is above the threshold and the change has the first value, the device performs a first operation that changes the user interface displayed on the display; and generates a first discrete tactile output that corresponds to the increase. If the increase is above the threshold and the change has the second value, the device performs the first operation and generates a second discrete tactile output that corresponds to the increase.

  • Publication number: 20190050055
    Abstract: An electronic device with a touch-sensitive surface, a display, and tactile output generator(s) displays an item navigation user interface that includes: a representation of a portion of items arranged into groups that are represented by corresponding index values and a first portion of the items includes a first group of the items that corresponds to a first index value in the index values; and an index navigation element that includes representations of three or more of the index values. While displaying the item navigation user interface, the device further detects a drag gesture on the touch-sensitive surface including movement from a first location corresponding to the representation of the first index value to a second location corresponding to a representation of a second index value. In response, the device generates a tactile output and switches from displaying the first portion to the second portion of the items.

  • Patent number: 10198073
    Abstract: An electronic device: displays a home button configuration user interface with a plurality of different tactile output settings for the home button. While displaying the home button configuration user interface, the device detects selection of a respective tactile output setting. In response to detecting a first input of a first type on the home button (while the respective tactile output setting is selected), the device determines whether the respective tactile output setting is a first or a second tactile output setting for the home button. If the respective tactile output setting is the first tactile output setting, the device provides a first tactile output without dismissing the home button configuration user interface. If the respective tactile output setting is the second tactile output setting, the device provides a second tactile output without dismissing the home button configuration user interface.
