Apple has launched a new iOS game-planning feature to help users navigate the world of apps, but it’s likely to have some unforeseen consequences.
In a blog post, the company noted that it had “taken a lot of feedback” on the iOS game plans app-specific language.
“We’ve tweaked the language for the new iOS games,” the post reads.
“To help users better understand the features of each app, we’ve added a number of new language features that allow users to type any word they want to in the app’s language of choice.
This includes words like ‘get me out of here,’ ‘get this,’ ‘thank you’ and more.
The more you type in a language, the more it gets changed and the more features you can type in.
We’ve also added more helpful suggestions, which allow you to suggest words you’d like to see more of in the new game plan.”
The app-wide language settings were meant to be useful when developers wanted to add new features and tweak the language of the app to their liking, but users seem to be enjoying the changes.
In particular, the new language feature can be used to add phrases like “you need to use the app a bit differently,” or “the app doesn’t have a ‘look and feel’ like in other apps.”
It’s unclear whether the feature will be expanded to other apps, though Apple has said that it will be “adding additional language options in the future.”
The feature is only available for iOS 10.0.3.1, which is the beta version of the operating system, but Apple has already rolled out the feature to the general public.
