We create a lot of prototypes using the built-in iPhone 11 wrapper, and typically present these to clients via Desktop over video conference. However, having the client view that same proto link on their mobile is a mind-blowing experience for most; we that Figma can auto detect the user’s device and present accordingly.
Because we need to accommodate the iOS status bar / notch for the proto to look super-realistic when presented on Desktop, we manually add a static bar to the top of all our (25+) frames. Not only is this tedious for designers & annoying for our developers, the biggest problem is that now we see a double status bar (one real, one fake) when viewed on mobile.
So what if… there was a “widget” available in the prototype settings (shown only if a mobile device wrapper is selected) that would allow for the following:
- Include default iOS / Android status bar when presented on Desktop (remains hidden when proto viewed on mobile)
- Fix position by default
- Uses adjacent background color (or hex specified manually)
- Option to present user’s current time (or set manually)
- Nice to have: subtle, animated (or randomized) battery life / 5G bars / wifi signal strength
I’ve read related Ideas here, think this would be really helpful for many prototypers - thank you!
