iPhone X and iOS 11 Can Finally Hide Lock Screen Notification Content
iPhone X will show the content of lock screen notifications exclusively to the device owner. This is possible due to TrueDepth camera and iOS 11 features.
iPhone X will be able to identify whether the original owner is looking on the lock screen and will display the notifications accordingly. If it is the original owner, iPhone X will show the content of the notifications and if it is a random person, the content will be hidden.
Before, iOS only offered two options for displaying the notifications on the lock screen: to show the full text of the notification of not to show notifications at all. And even this setting was only available in Mail and Messages.
Earlier iPhones that have no Face ID will have a setting to show notifications with content or preview only when the device is unlocked. In Android, this feature that seemed quite obvious has been introduced years ago. Apple needed 10 years to make this possible.
