  • Publication number: 20200326842
    Abstract: While displaying a first user interface that corresponds to a restricted state of a computer system, the computer system, in response to detecting a first input, replaces the first user interface with a second user interface while maintaining a current authentication state of the computer system. The second user interface includes a first search input region. In response to detecting an input in the first search input region in the second user interface: if the computer system is in an unauthenticated state, the computer system displays, on the second user interface, a first set of search results; and if the computer system is in an authenticated state, the computer system displays, on the second user interface, a second set of search results including at least a representation of first content within the first application is not in the first set of search results.

  • Patent number: 10803281
    Abstract: An electronic device with a display and a fingerprint sensor displays a fingerprint enrollment interface and detects, on the fingerprint sensor, a plurality of finger gestures performed with a finger. The device collects fingerprint information from the plurality of finger gestures performed with the finger. After collecting the fingerprint information, the device determines whether the collected fingerprint information is sufficient to enroll a fingerprint of the finger. When the collected fingerprint information for the finger is sufficient to enroll the fingerprint of the finger, the device enrolls the fingerprint of the finger with the device. When the collected fingerprint information for the finger is not sufficient to enroll the fingerprint of the finger, the device displays a message in the fingerprint enrollment interface prompting a user to perform one or more additional finger gestures on the fingerprint sensor with the finger.

  • Publication number: 20200301556
    Abstract: An electronic device, while displaying first and second user interface representations on a display, detects an edge input by a first contact on a touch-sensitive surface that includes movement of the first contact across the touch-sensitive surface. In response to detecting termination of the edge input, in accordance with a determination that the first contact moved by more than a first threshold amount during the edge input in a direction across the touch-sensitive surface that corresponds to a first predefined direction on the display, the device displays a second user interface that corresponds to the second user interface representation; and in accordance with a determination that the first contact did not move by more than the first threshold amount during the edge input in a direction across the touch-sensitive surface that corresponds to the first predefined direction on the display, the device redisplays the first user interface.

  • Publication number: 20200293189
    Abstract: The embodiments herein describe a mode of applications on the portable electronic device that improves single-handed operation of the devices. For example, the embodiments herein describe an ergonomic mode of an application that displays the graphical user interface (GUI) of the application in a bottom area of the display screen of the electronic device to allow the user to more easily interact with objects. The embodiments herein also describe an ergonomic mode of a keyboard displayed on the display screen of the portable electronic device. During the ergonomic mode of the keyboard, the keyboard is shifted towards a vertical edge of the display screen to allow a user to more easily reach keys of the keyboard that were previously unreachable without the user switching to two handed operation of the device or repositioning the electronic device in the user's hand.

  • Publication number: 20200293113
    Abstract: An electronic device: detects an input on a respective button. Tactile outputs are generated to indicate that the respective button has been activated in place of a mechanical switch that detects activation of the respective button when the respective button is mechanically compressed. In response to detecting the input on the respective button: in accordance with a determination that the input meets activation criteria, the electronic device provides a first tactile output with a first tactile output pattern that includes: between 0.5 and 4 cycles of an oscillation of one or more tactile output generators relative to corresponding neutral positions of the one or more tactile output generators. The oscillation of the one or more tactile output generators occurs at a frequency between 80 Hz and 400 Hz. In accordance with a determination that the input does not meet the activation criteria, the electronic device forgoes providing the first tactile output.

  • Patent number: 10769669
    Abstract: A media channel can include a mix of media items and invitational content items. At some point during the playback of the media channel an invitational content item can be presented. In some cases, the invitational content items eligible for presentation can be of differing types, such as video and audio. In can be advantageous to restrict presentation of video invitational content items to times when a user is likely to view the screen of the client device during playback of the invitational content item. To accomplish this one or more heuristics or rules can be applied to client device data to predict a user attention level. The user attention level can then be correlated to an invitational content item type, which can then be used to select an invitational content item for playback.
