This could be the new Apple Maps Lock Screen Live Activities for iOS 17 on iPhone.
Analyst941 claims they have seen various aspects of iOS 17 themselves. With that knowledge they have created these renders. I do want to add they also correctly predicted the Dynamic Island on iPhone 14.
Love it or don’t, Apple doesn’t care – this is the new Maps “Live Activity” for Lock Screen (all iPhones).
- Seamless transition when unlocking.
- View notifications over the map by swiping up as usual.
- shows most Lock Screen elements until unlocked (except widgets afaik).
And allegedly you can minimize the map to the size of the music player on the Lock Screen, and re-maximize it by tapping the activity.
analyst941 hasn’t seen this nor gotten enough details to show it, yet at least.
