We're just a week away from WWDC 2018, where Apple will introduce its latest software updates, including iOS 12. We've already introduced concepts from a view designer who can imagine how Apple could change things, and now iHelp BR joins in the fun …

The blog this weekend released a series Conceptual images of how Apple could redesign the lock screen with iOS 12. Headlining the concept is support for Apple Watch-like complications on the lock screen
With support for complications, users can select up to four different shortcuts that can be placed on the lock screen to facilitate access. If you use 3D Touch on any of the icons, a detail view is displayed. As you can see in the pictures, the complications could be a quick access to the phone app, weather details, music, stocks, etc.
In addition to the complications, the concept also provides a constantly-active mode for iPhone X users, as seen above. Similar to many Android phones, this constantly-on mode would display the above-mentioned complications and time in a "fading" effect. This means that the display remains mostly black and the time and keyboard shortcuts are displayed in a light text.
Other changes include a less intrusive volume indicator and a darker mode, both of which have been regularly requested by iPhone users for several years.
It is important to note, however, that iOS 12 remains mainly focused on bug fixes and performance improvements, so whether or not we actually see interface enhancements like these remains to be seen.
The WWDC will officially begin on Monday, June 4, with Apple's 10AM PT Keynote. At the event, we expect the revelation of iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12 and macOS 10.14.
