Lock Screen iOS – Tripit joins the suite of widgets for Tripit Blog

We all know the feeling of running through the airport with one hand of our luggage and the other holding a coffee, passport, cell phone, baby’s hand or all of the above. Finding details like your gate number can be challenging when you have to unlock your phone by typing a passcode or removing your face to use Face ID.

Thankfully, TripIt has introduced a series of widgets for iOS—including our new, TripIt Lock Screen Widget for iOS—to help you better anticipate what’s next when you’re on the go.

Introducing the TripIt Lock Screen Widget for iOS

Today, Apple released iOS 16, enabling iPhone users to add widgets to the lock screen. TripIt is proud to be among the first to offer a lock screen widget

With the new TripIt lock screen widget for iOS, you can easily glance at your iPhone for the most relevant details for your upcoming trip or activity — without ever having to unlock it. It shows you the information you need most, the moment you need it, displaying dynamic details updated throughout your trip.

Need more information? No problem. With a simple tap on the lock screen widget, we’ll take you to the TripIt app, where you can view your entire itinerary.

What are the benefits of using the TripIt lock screen widget?

The TripIt lock screen widget is constantly visible on your iPhone with visual details about upcoming activities on your trip—no need to unlock it!

  • Upcoming trips or plansWhether it’s a flight, train, rental car, hotel, restaurant, or stop on your road trip.
