Only a tap on the icon will display all relevant information

We can’t deny that the iOS 8 has come with a multitude of options and features but this one in particular is pretty amazing. Apple is bringing location-based shortcuts to the lock screen with iOS 8 so if in case you happen to be wandering around a mall, you will instantly get notifications about the nearest Starbucks or Apple Retail Store, as well as other outlets of interest that aren’t so closely affiliated with Apple. This new feature in the iOS 8 is an easy way to find your favorite stores and coffee shops and whatever you like; you no longer have to waste time looking up for them now.

Mapping apps are the coolest ones. They allow us to find locations instantly with simple voice-assisted directions. But there is some effort required in this too. So why don’t we take advantage of the new app which is heaven for the lazy ones.

The location-based icon is going to appear on the left-hand side of the unlock slider, opposite the camera button. And whenever the user needs to get information, only a tap will do the magic and all relevant data will be displayed instantly.
