  • Publication number: 20210081082
    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: 20210082200
    Abstract: A device can receive live video of a real-world, physical environment on a touch sensitive surface. One or more objects can be identified in the live video. An information layer can be generated related to the objects. In some implementations, the information layer can include annotations made by a user through the touch sensitive surface. The information layer and live video can be combined in a display of the device. Data can be received from one or more onboard sensors indicating that the device is in motion. The sensor data can be used to synchronize the live video and the information layer as the perspective of video camera view changes due to the motion. The live video and information layer can be shared with other devices over a communication link.

  • Patent number: 10949081
    Abstract: An electronic device with improved methods and interfaces for messaging displays a messaging user interface that includes a conversation transcript of a messaging session between a user of the electronic device and at least one other user. A first message that includes foreign language text is received from a remote device that corresponds to another user included in the messaging session. In response to receiving the first message, the electronic device displays the first message in the conversation transcript. In response to detecting a first input at a location that corresponds to the foreign language text in the first message: in accordance with a determination that the first input meets translation criteria, the electronic device performs a foreign-language-text-translation action; and in accordance with a determination that the first input does not meet the translation criteria, the electronic device forgoes performance of the foreign-language-text-translation action.

  • Patent number: 10884608
    Abstract: An electronic device displays content of a first content item, wherein the first content item is one of a sequence of content items. The device detects a user input that includes movement of a contact in a respective direction on the touch-sensitive surface. In response to detecting the user input: in accordance with a determination that the user input meets item-switching criteria, the device replaces display of the first content item with display of a second content item in the sequence of content items, wherein the item-switching criteria include a criterion that is met when a characteristic intensity of the contact is above a first intensity threshold; and, in accordance with a determination that the user input does not meet the item-switching criteria, the device navigates through the content of the first content item in accordance with the movement of the contact.

  • Patent number: 10841484
    Abstract: An electronic device displays a representative image. While displaying the representative image, the device detects a first input. In response to the first input, the device transitions from displaying the representative image to displaying a respective image that was acquired by a camera before acquiring the representative image. After transitioning from displaying the representative image to displaying the respective image, the device displays, in sequence starting with the respective image, at least some images acquired by the camera before acquiring the representative image and at least some of images acquired by the camera after acquiring the representative image. The device detects termination of the first input. In response to detecting termination of the first input, the device displays the representative image.
