Your merged-ios-macos UI design is not radical enough.

Thank you Alexander, good points there!

Notice that I kept it conservative for a reason, because to make it realistic, we have to take examples from Apple itself, they tend to do changes slowly…

As for the menu bar, well I’m aware of that, here’s what Schiller has said about it: “The Mac from the very first has had a menu bar fixed at the top. It’s core to the identity and the experience you get. But iOS doesn’t have a menu at the top. It never will.

And even in my Concept, the menu bar is not mandatory, notice that I’ve mentioned that even for Finder, users can get most of the contextual functionality by 3D-Touch / Long-tap, and yes, even if “AppleOS” will run on top of the iPhone, unlike iPads — I don’t see a reason to have a menu bar at all! But as we’ve seen in WWDC2017, iOS11 already looks and feels different on iPhones compared to the iPad, on the iPad it looks almost like macOS, so as I said — the context is important! But even in this method we can find some issues… So my goal is not to suggest or advice to Apple what to do, but since I’ve made this research as part of my Startup and what we are developing, I wanted to share my insights with the world. So the core idea is obvious, even if not everyone agrees (hey, people even disagree with Apple…) but Apple knows the best that it’s possible or not, and only they will decide how and if, but it’s not Sci-fi anymore, and we’ve seen Apple adapting ideas from competitors, let’s see if they’ll ever do something about it ;)

Have a nice weekend.
