A critical analysis of the iOS 10 lockscreen experience

These analysis is not accurate and far from an in depth study. A few thoughts:

1: there is a pagination indicator in the widget section if you swipe to the end

2: iOS 9 and below have left to right swipes to access apps through notifications as well

3: you miss the bottom to top swipe to access camera and contextual apps (i.e.: beacon based, periferal based) on previous iOS versions. The latter is still present.

4: camera is actually kind of the same: gesture to access it, use home button to go back,. Which is more than common on iOS UX.

5: force touch (which I know it’s not present on all devices but it is here to stay) allows better interactions with notifications. Personally I think it’s useful.

I can go on…

Finally, comparing with material design makes no sense, completely different paradigms, plus android is not that intuitive or consistent either.

From a UX perspective, people already know touch basic interactions, these technology isn’t new anymore, so in my point of view, these changes aren’t so misleading to users.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
