This concept shows us that it is possible to have the media player and notifications on the lock screen of iOS 16

lock screen in iOS 16

We are still in the proof of concept of iOS 16. New features and improvements are being tested in the beta. At the moment they are just that, tests, but it is more than likely that many of them will remain in the definitive version of the Operating System that we hope will be ready in September, together with the launch of the iPhone 14. In that concepts and tests that are done, a designer has experimented with the idea that you can on the lock screen itself, work with the music player and the notifications that can come to us from other applications. 

When we talk about beta versions, we talk about tests that are done with new functions that may or may not stay. But there are also Proof of concept, which are those that work in the virtual world but have not yet reached the beta phase. That is, we are still in a previous step, in the design of it. These ideas are made by Apple itself but there are also users who want to contribute with their creations. This is what happened with the idea of ​​Hidden Collee.

We already know that with iOS 16 now the Media Player on the lock screen is more compact and we can see the album art in full screen as it could be done in iOS 10. Starting from that base, the student has thought why not be able to add notifications on the lock screen without interfering with the player.

With this, he has made some designs and has thought that it could be possible to ensure that the notifications do not overlap the album cover. This way when receiving notifications or scrolling to Notification Center with older notifications, the album art is actually minimized in the media player. When you hide those notifications, the album art expands back to full screen. You have created a video on your YouTube channel that shows us with images what has already been said.

It's a very good idea And maybe if it reaches Apple's ears, it can implement it and have a new function in iOS 16.
