It looks like the Lock Screen shrinks and expects me to “do something” such as add a new Lock Screen. Or something.
Presumably this is some type of Lock Screen editing/changing feature. What triggers this behavior? How can I block this from happening? Or at least change the triggering method to something less likely to occur unintentionally?
It irritates me. Eventually trained myself not to use the swipe that causes this “feature” to popup. It is too easy to put the iPhone into this state. It should be some more deliberate/complex swipe or pinch; I would suggest a four finger pinch from the corners of the screen to the center.
