    Well, this is no offense but since the first iOS release until now, it's iOS6. I see there is not much improvement on the lockscreen. We can see that there are only little change on it, for example notification pop up, camera fast button...

    I was hoping something new for lockscreen would come from iOS6 but once again apple made me disappointed. It's really a waste to left the lockscreen nothing but the clock. Don't wanna compare but you know with Android, it's more than a lockscreen but somehow a flipchart where various information is dynamically updated and we don't have to go to specific apps like in iOS.

    Are you happy with the lockscreen?

    Some people just don't understand the purpose of the lock screen. The lock screen isn't supposed to harbor a whole load of information. It's supposed.. to lock the phone.

    When the phone is locked, it's practically off. That way, when you put it in your pocket, you don't accidentally launch apps or email your boss.

    I jailbreak for many reasons and this is definitely one, but I wish Apple would at least ALLOW people to use their lockscreens for more than time/date/camera. If they don't want to add to it that's fine, but the option would be nice.

    I don't even use the lock screen on my iPhone. I use an app from Cydia called NoLockScreen.

    The lock screen is a symbol of the iPhone. Apple has added more functionality with notification center and I'm sure they will add more in the future, but don't expect anything too drastic.

    This is another area where Apple has fallen way behind, but don't complain, you're supposed to accept whatever Apple gives you, innovation is for Android/Windows etc..

    actually, no you are not. i would have to say you are in the Majority. how many times does one need to see a WWF notification? or FB response? -- once and it is enough. i'll reply when i choose to do so. not be reminded EVERY time i wake my phone

    don't let those jailbreakers sway your thoughts

    believe it or not, i do have a life away from my phone... well kind of haha

    I'm maybe an odd one here, but I like the lockscreen to be as clean as possible. I used Intelliscreen X before, but now I find it to cluttered. So I just swipe up the Intelliscreen, and if I want some information available there, I just swipe it down on the lockscreen. Even I use one tweak called Clock Hide, so the only clock on my lockscreen is the one in the status bar.

    you probably already know but you can hide ISX by default on the LS and then swipe down when needed

    Really? I haven't seen that option. Do you mean by hiding the ISX on LS by default, it is to turn off the 'Show on Lock Screen' toggle on ISX's settings? Because I tried to do that, and I cannot swipe down ISX on LS.

    there is a toggle called Show On Startup, turn it to OFF then respring. i believe it is referring to whether you want ISX to show when you wake your device

    Just to clarify (because I spent a lot of time trying to figure this out when I used ISX) "Show On Startup" refers to right after a restart. But for the everyday wake/sleep type of on and off (pressing the lock button) ISX will remember whether or not it was showing, according to Intelliborn. So if it was hidden when you locked your device, it's hidden when you next wake it. If it was showing, it will be showing.

    (This is actually the feature that eventually got me on the road back to using Lockinfo.)

    +1, I'm with you on this one too heatherly - I like the way my 4S is stock, although sometimes it does seem like more people JB than how many people stay stock.

    There are other smartphones that exhibit some of the features on the lockscreen that the OP is asking for. Maybe the OP should try one of those phones. I'm not sure why consumers buy a product and then complain about the product because of features it didn't have at the time of purchase. If you didn't like the phone's lockscreen at the time of purchase and you felt this strongly about it, why did you buy it?

    My only question is how long do people stare at the lockscreen or home screen? I look at my windows PC and the lock screen isn't much to write home about. It's locked. Fun times for sure. So i unlock it and get to the desktop. I see a few icons pinned and some random picture that's the background. Again, not much to write home about.

    Things get interesting if i launch an app though..

    The whole idea of allowing apps and widgets on the lock screen is for quick access to the most important features of the phone. I love being able to directly access email, sms, camera and video right from the lock screen. With one swipe, I'm in. That's without rooting (or jailbreaking).
