Apple taking notes from Android OS with pattern lock

• 28/02/2011


It appears that 9to5mac has gotten a hold of some images that show Apple employees are testing out the famous Android Pattern Locking feature only seen on Android devices. At the current time, there’s been no announcement that this feature will ever make it into an iOS build for the iPhone or other Apple devices, but it is being tested by Apple staff for a number of internal uses.

This tells me that Apple isn’t maybe as arrogant as some think, and are willing to adopt great ideas. The problem for Google now is that since Android is open source, can they trademark the pattern lock feature?
