What if Apple designed the Nintendo Switch UI?

The Nintendo Switch's interface hasn't changed a lot since the console launched back in 2017. Despite the odd tweak to improve usability, it hasn't delivered the customisation options that a lot of fans have been clamouring for. One designer's latest shot at showing how that could be done redesigns the Switch UI to offer the features fans have been crying out for while making the whole thing feel very Apple-like in the process.

The mock-up seeks to provide a lot of what players have been asking for, including customisation options and, most significantly, a way to sort games and apps into folders to aid organisation – something Nintendo itself has shown little inclination to offer (see our roundup of Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals if you've yet to purchase the console).
