Apple intelligence 9to5mac claims that Apple is working on a new Android-like gestures based lock screen for iOS devices.
This new type of lock screen is already being tested internally.
The new lock screen system is the same as the one Google Android uses. The user sets up a pattern and needs to input that same pattern in, instead of a password or a four number code.
There's no official word from Apple if it's planning to push it in the next iOS update or in the future. More screenshots below:
