New iOS Lock Screen Concept Expands on Camera Shortcut


Sentry_NC, the creator of popular jailbreak tweak Auxo, is back with a new user interface concept that expands on the lock screen camera shortcut on iOS devices. And just like with Auxo, the concept designer is collaborating with a jailbreak developer to turn this design into a real jailbreak tweak available for jailbroken devices through Cydia.

The concept involves tapping on the lock screen camera shortcut, which then reveals additional shortcuts for the Phone, Messages and Music apps. It’s a fairly simple concept at first glance, but it’s yet another minor detail that would make the iOS experience all that better. It would be nice if Apple could implement a native feature like this, and finally add an easy-to-access brightness toggle while they’re at it.

Jailbreak developer Rudolf Lichtner is currently working on this concept, which should be available in Cydia in the foreseeable future. We’ll assume that both iOS 5 and iOS 6 devices will be supported. The release of new, innovative jailbreak tweaks like Auxo and this is really adding to the anticipation of an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak for newer devices. What do you think of this new concept?
