To the north side, there’s a camera, to the south a lock, to west, a telephone dial and to the east side, a message icon.
Question is whether the IOS 8 lock screen will look indeed like as depicted in the screenshots. One thing however can be said, the IOS lock screen is pretty wonderful look wise.

One important aspect of the app, highlighted by 9to5mac is its iconography has almost one to one similarity with iOS 7’s thin outlined pictograph.
