Even as the struggle to jailbreak iOS 6 continues, the attention has diverted to the impending release of iOS 7 and several concept images and videos of the next iteration of Apple's mobile OS have surfaced. One such concept design is the Lock Screen Drawer.

The Lock Screen Drawer concept will enable users to access commonly used system setting toggles directly from the lock screen of their device with a hidden drawer that can be dragged into place through the use of a one finger drag gesture.

With the concept design, instead of dragging down notifications, the gesture would present a clean and usable drawer that would contain a number of icons that each represents a different system setting like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, AirPlane, Hotspot etc. The video released for the concept design shows four icons on the display, but the drawer interface may also have a horizontally scrolling panel to allow the user to scroll through multiple setting options.

Not a lot is known about the Lock Screen Drawer concept. Many simple concepts have become fully functional and extremely popular on the Cydia store. One of the most recent concept designs, which is now functional, is the Auxo tweak that offers the multitasking switcher and has since gone on to be considered one of the best tweaks of 2012.

The Lock Screen Drawer concept "takes a moment to reinvent and refresh the idea of toggles on the lock screen."

"It's Android-esque, but it's time we get some more flexibility, and this would be a great place to start. Dear Apple, let's reinvent the lock screen. There's just way too much wasted space happening right now," reported Macgasm.

The Lock Screen Drawer concept may become functional in the existing iOS. It is anybody's guess if Apple has already thought of this concept and will introduce it in iOS 7.
