  • Patent number: 10893036
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to messaging user interfaces. The method includes displaying a messaging session between a user of the device and a respective participant in the message session other than the user of the device in a messaging user interface, wherein the respective participant is associated with a user account of the user. While the messaging session is active, the method also includes displaying, on the display, a first credential verification affordance in the messaging user interface. The method further includes detecting one or more user inputs to authenticate with the user account. After detecting the one or more user inputs to authenticate with the user account, in accordance with a determination that the authentication with the user account was successful, the method further includes providing an indication that the user was successfully authenticated with the user account to the respective participant via the messaging user interface.

  • Patent number: 10860207
    Abstract: A method is performed at a mobile device with a display. The method includes displaying a first mode of a plurality of modes of the device. The first mode of the device is active when a first set of time and/or device location criteria are met and the second mode of the device is active when a second set of time and/or device location criteria are met. While the first set of time and/or device location criteria are met and the first mode of the device is active, the mobile device detects a first input that overrides the first mode of the device. In response to detecting the first input, the mobile device activates the second mode of the device. The mobile device detects a second input and, in response to detecting the second input, performs an operation in the second mode of the device.
