I often turn on the phone without unlocking it, just to see what time it is, or more rarely, to see the current date.
I just couldn’t find the current date on the lock screen, no matter how much I swiped. It’s not on the default screen (where it’s usually placed right under the current time, on other phones), and it’s not in the notification bar. Interestingly enough, it is in the notification bar, but only if the phone is unlocked. Even more interestingly, I noticed that if I have many notifications on the lock screen, expanding the notifications drawer only opens it in the “short state”, in which case, the date is displayed.
In any case, can we please have the date in plain sight on the lock screen? Thanks.
