With the release of iOS 10 apple has removed the trusty “Swipe to unlock” feature from the home screen thus replacing it with the physical click of the home button. Thankfully with the introduction of “widgets” or also known as “extensions” we are releasing a custom widget for “Kiosks”, allowing for “swipe to unlock” to remain with a twist. This addition to Kiosks app enables an elegant and simple method to unlock and launch the app without the need to physically engage the home button.
Following the recent string of app updates this new widget enabled Kiosk built will be released as version 3.4 this month. The basic function of the widget will be to serve as an “app launcher”. App version will also be displayed for easy visibility on versioning across any number of iPad Kiosk deployments.
