In the next update, the new application bar can be collapsed and expanded: the first will allow you to take advantage of more space on the screen, hiding the app icons, and for this reason it is specifically designed for devices with small displays. The second instead allows you to take advantage of the complete bar, with the start menu, shortcuts for apps and widgets. Switching from one mode to another can be done with an up or down swipe gesture.
