If you are used to locking your iDevice with a security code, you will be interested to learn that Apple is currently working on a new locking system which would take up the same principle as that of the Android OS: know that the The user should make a precise gesture distributed between 9 points to access the welcome screen of his iDevice.
Not sure however that such a way to unlock your iDevice could see the light of day (given its resemblance to the patented technique used by Google) but it is said that the Cupertino company was also working on another means which would consist of unlocking its screen by sliding his finger from top to bottom, rather than from left to right but using a system other than the slide that we know.
Finally, it is said that such a new means of screen locking could also be used when the user should validate a transaction from their iDevice. Are we going to find such new functionality in the iPhone 5, for example?
