We’ve heard time and time again about just how boring the iOS user interface has become, so a number of graphic designers have been creating concepts to show off visual improvements that they think would enhance the mobile platform.
“You get a time and date, some limited music controls, notifications, and a quick access to the camera app,” says The Verge forum user white.noise, referring to the iOS lock screen. “No widgets, no customization, nothing.”
The boring state of iOS has inspired this user to create mockups of what the lock screen could look like with widgets, customization and a unique unlocking method. The design looks
rather cluttered and very detailed oriented, much like Android, so this might not be every iPhone user’s cup of coffee. Nevertheless, check out the full-size concepts ahead and share your impressions.

Lastly, let’s talk about widgets. Widgets are displayed at the bottom of the screen, there are many type of widgets (I have made 3 concept ones which will be attached at the bottom). Widgets can be interactive, or static.
