Possible to detect when the phone is unlocked? (As in "slide to unlock")

    Basically I'd like to have my app update automatically when the phone is unlocked. Obviously this would only work if the app is already running—that's fine. Any ideas on how to accomplish this, or even if it's possible? Maybe a notification I can use with NSNotificationCenter...?

    Unfortunately searches aren't helping much—every result is about the other kind of unlocking!

    As the docs say, it also posts a notification so you could use NSNotificationCentre to respond to this elsewhere in your code.
