[Concept] Checking the Time In-Game
The Not-So-Major Issue
Here's a problem iPhone users face when they're playing a game and need to check the time: there isn't an easy way to do it. You could either lock the phone and unlock it, or slide down the notification centre. While the notification centre trick may seem easier, when you swipe down, a grabber appears.
This is a feature to prevent users from accidentally opening notification centre when they don't want to. I'm not saying it's wrong or anything, but it can get annoying at times.
The solution to this issue is not to add a permanent status bar (which is just silly), adding another 176 pixels to the next iPhone to have space to digitally show the time, or physically joining an analog clock to the top of the iPhone; but to add on to what Apple has made.
This concept slightly increases the size of the notification grabber to accommodate for one row of text, the same size as the text on the status bar, gladly showing you the time.
