  • New Concept Adds a Toggle Drawer to the Lock Screen


    A new iOS concept has appeared on the interwebz by Jean-Marc Denis and it makes accessing important toggles super simple. Since many people like to toggle things on or off depending on whether they’re in use or not, it’s very strange that Apple hasn’t yet come with a native solution for allowing users to easily enable and disable features without having to navigate through preference panes in the Settings application.

    The concept’s solution? – Add a toggle drawer to the lock screen:



    As shown in the video above, the concept adds another grabber to the lock screen, this one right under the lock screen’s clock. Dragging down on it reveals four toggles – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplane Mode, and Personal Hotspot. When the toggles are disabled, they appear grayed out. When the toggles are enabled, they appear to glow blue, similarly to IntelliScreenX's toggles.

    When the user receives notifications that populate the lock screen, the toggle drawer will be hidden, but the grabber will appear at the bottom of the notification list. The user can again pull down on the grabber to show the toggle drawer, and the notifications will slide down with it.

    The toggle drawer uses Apple’s glassy lock screen style, so it blends in well with its surroundings. The lock screen is also a very easy place to get to, so if you’re in a meeting or in class and you don’t want to be distracting, you can simply get to your lock screen to enable or disable features, such as Airplane Mode to silence all alerts, and then put your iPhone back in your pocket in no time at all.

    Would you want a feature like this?

      Apple just steal ideas of elsewhere then patented that idea first then sue the original creator of that idea.

      Yea, so the concept pics would be nice if they were implemented into IOS but they wont ever.
      It's not all about Apple. Concepts offer springboards for jailbreak developers to begin writing tweaks. One such example is Auxo.

      IntelliScreenX does the same thing on the lockscreen, has more features AND its real!!!

      Just position your toggle bar wherever you want and there you go!

      Don't count apple out on this stuff, they are known for a simple clean interface. They want nothing more even if its something nice like this or other tweaks they don't want to complicate and potentially move towards android interfaces etc. they have to set themselves apart

      I didn't say it was a lock screen, I was talking about this "concept" and you can put settings, widgets and shortcuts to apps among many other things on an Android phone.

      Yeah apple can throw every feature in their phone but they don't want too. Why not? Because then they'd be just like android.
      +1! But then we can have the pleasue of watching yet another lawsuit battle...lol

      I didn't see a battery issue IF I turn off the RSS Feeds. Those seem to constantly search for updated content which drains battery life.

      This has been around for awhile on android based phones. located in lock screen settings, a little different depending on samsung, htc, motorola. I guess that is where the idea came from for who ever made this...(copied).

      That's because android needs this to compensate for crappy battery

      Umm...how would this help with compensate for the crappy battery? So being that a lot of people use sbsettings to do kind of the same thing..is that to compensate for the crappy battery on the iphone?
