Hey Geeks! Dhvanesh here, your friendly neighborhood Apple enthusiast and editor-in-chief of iGeeksBlog+.


Steve Jobs famously said, "People don’t know what they want until you show it to them. That’s why I never rely on market research. Our task is to read things that are not yet on the page."

At WWDC last week, Apple gave us a whole new level of customization that permeates the entire interface, from the Home Screen layout to the Lock Screen, icons, and the Control Center.

However, after seeing what some early beta adopters have made, maybe it’s not such a good idea to give users so many choices. We have been using such customization over the years, but now it feels cheap, convoluted, and a little un-Apple-like.

Now, Apple tries its best to strike a balance between what users want and what they need. Steve Jobs would be on board with Apple Intelligence, Vision Pro, Math Notes but definitely not with let us tint our icons.

What do you think? Do we need this level of customization, and would Steve Jobs have approved giving away such controls to end users? Hit the reply button and let me know your thoughts.
