In the blink of an eye, May 2023 came to an end. The time for Apple's WWDC is getting closer and closer. As per usual, Apple will release the new iOS 17 system at this meeting. Here we will introduce the new lock screen on iOS 17.

Overview of iOS 17

For Apple's iPhone products, the iOS operating system has always been one of their hallmarks. Previously, when iOS 16 was released, Apple officially added a series of improvements such as a personalized lock screen, a customizable clock face with a long press, a calendar widget, a new lock screen theme store, the Live Text feature, the Apple Pay Later (buy now, pay later) feature, and a "security check".

However, many users have encountered some issues after upgrading to iOS 16, such as a shortened battery life and so on. And this will be solved at iOS 17.

What’s New on Lock Screen Of iOS 17?

Recently, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, a well-known Apple tipster, sent a message stating that iOS 17 will greatly improve the lock screen interface, and is dedicated to making the iPhone a "home smart screen", enhancing the functions of the wallet and location apps.

  • This new interface will present content with dark backgrounds and bright text, making it easier for users to read.

  • It is similar to the interface that Google introduced in Android in 2019, and Amazon has long offered such options on its tablets, allowing the tablet to enter a mode similar to the Echo Show interface for smart home devices.

For example, when Google's Pixel phones are used together with the Pixel Stand, users can make a variety of settings, including the option to show a slideshow of images from Google's albums while the phone is charging, and Google's At a Glance component can display notifications such as the date and calendar reminders when the phone is locked.

In terms of details, the iPhone with iOS 17 will be able to display calendar appointments, weather data, notifications, and other information when placed horizontally, making it the hub of data for the home.

In addition to the improvements mentioned above, iOS 17 will also feature an overhaul of the Control Center and a re-styling of the user interface; improvements to the Lingering Island design that appeared on the iPhone 14 series to support more features; and an updated lock screen interface with a major upgrade to the Live Activity window.

Besides, iOS 17 has upgrades and new features for people with disabilities, providing them with more assistance and convenience.

In fact, iOS 16 released last year has components that allow users to view some information in a vertical screen state, such as stock quotes, news, and temperature. Additionally, the media has mentioned that Apple is also working on making the iPad have the same interface of iOS 17 as the iPhone.

The development plan for the aforementioned new interface, codenamed Dawn, will go live later this year. Apple is attempting to embed real-time information on a larger scale into its software, and the new interface for iOS 17 is an effort in that direction.
