I'm loving this fun new iPhone lock screen concept

Apple gave the iPhone lock screen such much-needed love with iOS 16, introducing customisation options including fonts and widgets. One thing that hasn't changed is the plain old passcode entry UI – but one designer has imagined a fun, if not entirely practical, take on the design.

Product designer Kee Yen Yeo has reimagined the passcode input tool as 'dial to unlock' – with the design mimicking a traditional dial combination padlock. It looks wildly fiddly to use (goodbye muscle memory), but hey – if you're trying to spend less time on your phone, perhaps that's what you need. (If this isn't you, take a look at the best iPhone 14 deals.)
