Raise your hands to the sky: iOS 13 has a new volume indicator! [atualizado]

Well, fear nothing, because the 9to5Mac has just reassured souls around the world: even though the news was not highlighted in the WWDC19 presentation keynote, yes, iOS 13 has a new volume indicator!

Maybe this is not the solution everyone expected below, a concept by designer Ben Geskin shows “an idea” good more discreet (maybe even too much), very similar solution used by apps like Instagram or Telegram. Still, an evolution, isn't it?

Remember, too, that we are still in the first beta of iOS 13. Apple can (and should!) bring some visual trouble to the system until its final release and, with any luck, we can still see a volume indicator. more elegant and functional in the coming months. Will take.
