    I approve of adding more info to the lock screen, but this particular proposal seems too complicated.

    It's a lock screen, not an alternate 'top-level' OS.

    So...I appreciate what he's trying to do, but this seems like too much.

    Make it user-configurable then everybody is happy.

    This. I want some more lockscreen utility, but this is too far.

    I like the idea of the lock screen cards where you can have different information show up at the top but the rest is far too contrived IMO.

    I think the lock screen is fine as it is -- no need to complicate it. Apple stresses simplicity with respect to what they decide to integrate into their products - both on the hardware side and the software side. The lock screen serves two basic purposes:

    1.) It serves as a standby to conserve battery life
    2.) It serves as a way to prevent you from unintentionally pressing buttons, opening apps, or calling people while the phone is in your pocket.


    I think with Jony Ive taking over Human UI/UX, there won't be any complicated changes to the lock screen like the author of the post in the link you provided suggests - Jony, more than anyone, perhaps, understands the importance of simplicity in user interfaces and the role it plays for Apple as a whole.
