    What the ****, Apple??
    I've seen a few online threads that say this off-centered-ness is by design. I call BS. Motherfu...

    It's been since iOS 10 debuted... if it was an acccidnet, it have been fixed by first update, let alone in betas... it's on purpose.

    It is by design, there are actually two columns there.

    All iPads with iOS 10 should behave that way at the moment.

    There have been a number of threads about this.
    Yes, it is intentional. It's to go with the more columned look. I actually prefer it.

    There might be two columns, but the information only displays in the middle. Can we please piss and moan to Apple about this so they change it back?

    Also, is there a way to completely remove the time and date from the iPad lock screen? If I can't have it centered, I don't want it there at all.

    I'm not going to complain. If we refuse to accept things or change our habits/beliefs.. life is going to be one long and stressful journey.

    I like it, and I'm probably not the only one.

    Could someone post a pic of the two columns? It would be helpful to the discussion.

    What improvements do you see over the previous lock screen?
    I fail to so any benefit in my daily use of the lock screen or control center in iOS 10. And it's not that I don't want to try, I simply don't see the improvement.

    I don't see any improvement, I also don't see the changes hindering me in any way. It's Apple's product, if I want to use it then I must learn to work with what is offered. Complaining about a perceived injustice instead of focusing on resolving the issue is only going to add stress where it wouldn't otherwise exist.

    It's just a lock screen ;)

    Or just be able to admit it was a mistake, many see it as a negative distraction, and change it back to the way it used to be. Change for the sake of it is never healthy.

    We have plenty user comments here that prefer the old way. Ain't broken, no need for fixing in the first place.
    We are customers who happen to use the product, if we don't like where it's going this will most certainly have significance for Apple. Of course you can feel free to sit it out and pretend all is great. Someone has to drink the kool aid.

    Pretend? Kool aid? So, when you're met with an opinion that differs from your own, you imply that the speaker isn't being truthful? I feel you would benefit greatly from opening your mind and being more accepting of others. Have a nice day.

    Yeah, and maybe you accept that others are unhappy with certain functions in software, and go to forums to voice that opinion.
    Trying to downplay stuff ala "it's just a lock screen" is hardly helpful.

    You're "plenty" of comments represent a ridiculously small sample size. People who are happy with the lock screen or at least indifferent are far less likely to take to a forum to say so, so those who are complaining may be a vocal minority.

    It is rather condescending to suggest that others are in denial or "drinking the kook-aid" just for disagreeing with you about something as benign as a lock screen layout. Those are the kind of glib remarks that people direct at other people just for using Apple products at all just because they don't like them. People like what they like and it's certainly your right to complain, but you can never please everyone, so sometimes there will be changes that you don't like but others do. Lord knows I don't agree with ditching the headphone jack on iPhones, but it's either live with it or take my business elsewhere. Ultimately the only power we have as consumers is our cash.
