Apple has been working on a new gesture based screen lock down for iOS devices. Apple is internally using lock down screen for its employee “Apple Connect ” applications. The gesture based screen lock down works similar to that of Android’s nini-dot lock screen applications. This application allows user setup a pattern that will lock the device screen, instead of password or a four number code.
There is no word from Apple, whether this application will come to iOS devices or not. As, Google has patents of nine-dots lock screen apps, that probably means that company is testing this mechanism for some of their internal applications in the future.
Apple is said to be planning to bring this nine-dot lock down feature to its new mobile payment system business, on the EasyPay machines.
