To me it's a classic case of mending something that wasn't broken. The screen in my F10, like my old E92, is incorporated into the dash and, apart from the fact that it gives a neat flowing look, it's cowled by the surrounding plastic and is far less susceptible to glare.
I've had extensive test drives in the new F12 & 13 6 series and glare is a significant problem, especially in the convertible.
It looks like it should retract, but as it doesn't, it has the appearance of an afterthought.
I also wonder how many opportunistic thieves, thinking it's removable, will throw a brick through the side window in order to steal it.
