New iPhone X Home, Lock Screen Details Revealed in Xcode 9.1

Apple on Wednesday issued a new Xcode 9.1 beta that adds support for new operating systems, including iOS 11.1, watchOS 4.1 and tvOS 11.1. In addition, the new development environment update shows off a bit more of the Iphone X experience.

Xcode 9.1 features a more fleshed-out iPhone X simulator, including demonstrations of the new Lock and Home screen. Additionally, the update comes with a series of Onboarding videos for various tasks on the iPhone X.

The Lock screen features a few new surprises that Apple didn’t mention during its September event. For starters, the iconic Lock screen text has been changed to “Swipe up to open.”

The home indicator/gesture bar at the bottom of the display will also gently animate to suggest to users how they’ll unlock an iPhone in lieu of a Home button.

There’s also a prominently placed icon for Control Center in the upper-right corner. On the iPhone X, users will swipe down from this corner to access the revamped interface. Xcode 9.1 doesn’t feature a working Control Center, but the statusbar will apparently disappear and will be replaced by status indicators placed below the sensor notch.

Reportedly, there will also be dedicated Camera and Flashlight buttons near the home indicator at the bottom of the display, which will be accessible via a firm 3D Touch press.

As far as the Home screen, not a whole lot has changed. Apple has done away with the old-style iOS dock in favor of an unattached iPad-like dock with rounded corners. Of course, due to the smaller display compared to the iPad, the Dock is still limited to four apps on the new iPhone.

There’s also the aforementioned onboarding videos, which Brazilian developer Guilherme Rambo shared via Twitter. They’ll introduce iPhone X users to the new UI interactions, such as the various swipe gestures and remapped side button controls. You can see those videos below.

Pre-orders for the iPhone X will begin on Oct. 27. The premium OLED handset will then hit store shelves and ship out to customers on Nov. 3 — though many anaylsts predict that the device will be in short supply until next year.
