Lock/Unlock a record in Apex Code

Development (Apex, LWC & VF)

I would like to have the ability to lock and unlock a record in Apex code - exactly like locking/unlocking a record in an Approval Process. This would mean I could lock/unlock records when they reach a certain state, or lock/unlock child records when a parent record has been locked/unlocked by an Approval Process. Possibly having a keyword similar to using delete, update etc. : lock listOfRecordsToLock; unlock listOfRecordsToUnlock;
