MacRumors found a video of the new animation (China only) on Weibo. When force closing apps, rather than moving off the screen when swiped closed, apps now appear to shrink themselves when closed.
It has not taken Apple very long to implement a fix to the preliminary injunction that they were served. Luckily for those outside of China, the animation stayed the same and still looks great.
Thanks for reading. Comment you thoughts below. Should Apple, Inc. have fought this more, instead of just outright changing the animation so soon? What do you think?
