Modal vs. Page Push?

almost 2 years ago from , Product Designer @ URBN Inc.

With the introduction of new modal designs in iOS 13, it has me wondering which is best - a modal or a page push? And when to use which. There are certain areas of an experience that you would want to remain in the nav stack, which makes the case for using page push. But what about when it doesn't really matter - page push, or modal?

    Typically I would say if there is one immediate action to take, a modal should be used. Push page is for a new set of information. There are also "full screen" modals which would be used for more complex sets of information and input such as editing a piece of media (which could be a push page as well depending on flows and architecture).
