  • A dubious rumor claims that Apple’s upcoming iOS 17 will feature lock screen functionality for Apple Maps.

    Unlocking a phone to access navigation can be an annoyance and a safety hazard, especially when driving. First spotted by AppleInsider, leaker “@Analyst941” says iOS 17 will have a “Live Activity for Lock Screen,” providing at least some navigation features without unlocking.
