OS 10 Lock Screen ? Secure Your Mobile With IOS 10 Lock Screen

Go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode, enter your passcode and then tap to turn off the toggle switch for Today view under the header Allow access when locked. The Today view is Apple's term for the lock-screen widgets; you'll know they're gone when you see only one dot and the camera icon at the bottom of the lock screen instead of two dots and the camera icon.

OS 10 Lock Screen – Secure your mobile with iOS 10 Lock Screen


With a brand-new iOS operating system now available, many users are excited to delve into iOS 10's biggest and boldest changes, like an overhauled Messages app and a more personal space in Photos to relive past vacations and family get-togethers. However, before you even get to all of iOS 10's new features, you'll have to get used to its new lock screen mechanisms, which completely change the way the iPhone is unlocked moving forward.

iOS 10 brings about the first major overhaul to the lock screen since the iPhone launched in 2007, ditching the popular "Slide to Unlock" instruction on the bottom of the screen for a collection of new prompts that make it easier than ever take advantage of the lock screen. Prior to iOS 10, iPhone 6s and 6s Plus users in particular experienced some frustrations with the traditional method of unlocking the phone, as the faster Touch ID system would unlock "too quickly," causing users to miss notifications that might have been on the lock screen.

While slightly complex until you get the hang of it, iOS 10 streamlines this process so that you can still have your thumb placed on Touch ID when the iPhone wakes up via a new Raise to Wake feature on the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE, without immediately jumping past the lock screen. For more details on how to navigate the lock screen, interact with notifications, and unlock your iPhone, follow each set of instructions below.

Before you even get past the lock screen, there are a few new additions to the front-end menus in iOS 10 that should be noted for anyone who likes to take a glimpse at their apps or snap a quick photo without unlocking their iPhone.

Apple's first-party Messages and Mail apps, for example, allow you to perform various actions directly from the lock screen, such as responding to messages, while most other third-party apps simply direct you to the app itself once your phone is open because developers need to specifically add support for rich notifications. As with the adoption of 3D Touch itself, these features are expected to grow in popularity as more developers embrace iOS 10.

Since any app that allows you to remain on the lock screen will be largely self-explanatory (like typing a text in Messages, as in the screenshot below), these steps will be for notifications that require you to dive past the lock screen.

Although the new features of the lock screen let you peruse various notifications and widgets for as long as you want, the duality of Raise to Wake and Touch ID also let you enter an iPhone in one quick gesture, as long as you press the home button as soon as you wake up the screen. This method will provide an unlocking method closer to that of iOS 9.

It takes a little getting used to at first, but after a few tries the new unlocking method feels far easier and more convenient than the old mainstay of swiping to unlock. MacRumors will have plenty of other how-to guides coming out to help users get acquainted with iOS 10, so keep a watch out for those and visit the forums for more specific user-created topics focused on the iPhone 7 and iOS 10.

The new lock screen in iOS 10 is a lot different than previous versions, but one thing that stuck around is the quick access camera shortcut. The only real difference aside from aesthetics is that now you don't have to swipe up from the camera icon. Instead, you can simply swipe to the left from right side to quickly snap a picture.

Next, simply toggle the switch next to the Camera entry, making sure it's turned off. Once you've done that, the camera shortcut on your lock screen will disappear, and no one will be able to sneak a bunch of pictures while you're away.

Previously iOS users could add widgets to the Notification Center, now with the launch of iOS 10 iPhone and iPad users will be able to add widgets to the Search screen, which is accessed by swiping right on either the Lock screen or the Home screen.

iOS 10 is currently only available in beta 1 for developers, so to be able to add and remove widgets to your Lock or Home screen you will need to download the beta 1 or enroll for the public beta due out in July. Alternatively, you can avoid any issues with the beta versions of the operating system and wait for the official release in September.

We look at how you can add and remove widgets that you will access by swiping right on your Lock or Home screen. We also detail the simple process of how you can disable widgets completely if they are proving to be an annoyance.

Go to Settings on your device > Touch ID & Passcode > enter your passcode > scroll down to the Allow access when locked section > disable the toggle next to Today.

The latest version of Apple's mobile operating system comes with some privacy improvements. Before you do anything like customizing your phone, loading new apps, or syncing your data for the first time, you should take a few steps to lock down your device and protect your privacy.

The first thing you might notice are widgets, which give you an at-a-glance view of your day (where you're going, the news, your calendar, what's coming up next, and more). This swipe-right feature is available from your lock screen.

Notice anything that shouldn't be there? Check those data-leaking widgets by unlocking your iPhone, then swiping right to the widgets panel, and scrolling down.From there, select edit, and that's where you can modify what's displayed on the lock screen.

We've seen numerous cases before of the lock screen opening up opportunities for attackers to take control of your device or swipe data. You should prevent others from using Siri or being able to reply to your text messages.

By going once again to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode, you can limit what is available on your lock screen. For maximum privacy, all items should be disabled. But you can customize this depending on your preferences. You can also enable the Erase Data function so that your device erases its storage after 10 failed unlock attempts.

The shorter the lock screen setting, the faster your iPhone or iPad display will shut off before anybody can get access to it. You can lower the auto-lock period by going to Settings > Display & Brightness > Auto-Lock. Remember: lower is better.

Just like previous versions of iOS, you can set your alerts and notifications to preview their content -- like text messages and emails -- on your lock screen, allowing anyone with access to your iPhone or iPad a glimpse. To limit this feature, for example, to just showing the sender of the message, go to Settings > Notifications, and then select Messages and Mail for text messages and email, respectively. From each screen, you can change the preview style. For maximum privacy, disable Show Previews so that message content won't be displayed on the lock screen.

Having taken a closer look at a much improved Messages app, which delivers more expressive and animated ways to message friends and family, our preview of big new features in iOS 10 continues with a detailed overview of an all-new Lock screen. Wait, the Lock screen in iOS 10 warrants an article?

The Notification Center, your widgets and Control Center are readily available with just a swipe or a press. And thanks to deeper 3D Touch integration with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, interacting with your Lock screen and widgets is easier and funnier.

Because unlocking an iOS device gives the operating system full access to encrypted data, this method can be used to open the Camera app from the Lock screen with unrestricted access to the Photos library versus being able to only see the images you took in that particular session.

Lastly, invoking the Notification Center while interacting with an app also gives you access to the widgets screen: swipe down from the screen bottom while in an app to show the Notification Center and then swipe to the right while inside the Notification Center to reveal your widgets.

iOS 10 permits you to access Spotlight Search right from the Lock screen, with a caveat (more on that later). To start searching, swipe to the right on the Lock screen to get to the widgets side panel. Your search field is right at the top.

To put a widget on your Lock screen, tap the Add Widget button in the 3D Touch shortcuts menu. A checkmark appears in the top right corner to denote that the widget was successfully added to the Lock screen. Unfortunately, you cannot remove the widget from the Lock screen via Home screen shortcuts menus, which would be a great time-saver.

Apple went all out with widgets on iOS 10. Not only are they prettier to look at, more organized and accessible from the Home and Lock screen, but there are more of them, too, as Apple has created a bunch of new stock widgets for iOS 10.

With its launch, Apple claims that iOS 10 is the biggest update in the platform's history. It features several upgrades that make iOS 10 quite easy to use. The operating system's visuals aren't too poor either. It lends your iPhone an all new modern look, which isn't too bad. The lock screen in particular has received several overhauls. Notifications, widgets and control center see several upgrades. Still, you might want to secure your updates and messages if your iPhone is in a public place. Here's how to completely secure your device's lock screen in a few easy steps. Take a look below to find out more.
