iOS 7 Will Let You Slide Anywhere To Unlock Your Screen




Ever since the iPhone came out in 2007, users have always had to slide a finger along the bottom of the screen to unlock it. With iOS 7, Apple’s still has the ‘slide to unlock’ message at the bottom of the lockscreen, but rather than having to drag a little square across the screen to open your device, now you can swipe pretty much anywhere.

You can slide to unlock from the bottom, top, middle; you can even swipe from the top left corner down to the bottom right corner and iOS 7 will still unlock your screen.

It’s one of the most convient little features in iOS 7, so Gizmodo created a handy GIF to show all the new ways you can swipe to unlock, check it out below:

    I have to admit, there are some features that iOS probably should have had at least as of iOS 5. This is one of them. In any event, its good to see the lock screen be more flexible.

    Now you just need two for the arrows. Swipe down, swipe up.

    But what about swiping the opposite direction? Right to left?
