With iOS 16, Apple completely redesigned the lock screen, starting with the bare essentials and building a virtual dashboard for your life.
Apple just released iOS 16 a short while ago, and I imagine that by now practically all iPhone users have downloaded it. Let’s discuss all the improvements and changes made by Apple to the iPhone’s home screen and lock screen in iOS 16. One of the most notable elements of iOS 16 is the significant customisation update, which gives it a truly distinctive feel. You can do a lot with your lock screen right now, and there is a lot to talk about. Without further ado, let’s discuss how to customise your lock screen. You now have a tonne more options than just the image; you can alter the fonts and colours and add various 3D depth effects, among other things.
You no longer need to open the settings app on your iPhone to change the wallpaper, which is one of the greatest improvements in iOS 16.
The wallpaper switcher will appear when you press and hold the lock screen. You can find your wallpapers here. Your default wallpaper is the only one you have; modification is not available.
How to Edit Lock Screen iOS 16
Create a new lock screen:
- Simply long-press on your Lock Screen somewhere other than where your notifications are displayed to begin personalising it.
- Your Lock Screen zooms out, and the (+) button at the bottom of the screen allows you to add a new Lock Screen.
- You can choose between different Lock Screen configurations either manually or automatically.
- Additionally, under Wallpaper in the Settings app, you can change the current Lock Screen.
- Long pressing will bring up a selection mode where you may swipe to the lock screen you wish to delete and then long press.
- Delete Wallpaper can be chosen from the bottom of the screen.
Choose lock screen style:
Choosing your wallpaper is the first step in creating a new personalised lock screen. A background image from your collection of photos.Throughout the day, the background image is automatically changed. The frequency can be changed to hourly, daily, on tap, or on wake. Additionally, you have the option of selecting photographs manually or using the Photos app’s featured photos, which are automatically chosen from a variety of categories. Select up to six emojis, and a pattern will be created.Shows a dynamic globe that displays the earth or a close-up picture of your location on it or the moon or a specific feature of it or the entire solar system. You may even choose a background colour to create one of six subtle gradient effects.
The first thing you’ll want to customise after choosing a style is the time. There are several options available, and it’s the biggest component on your Lock Screen.
To see the Font &Color selector, tap the time. More than a dozen colours are available, six font styles are available, and a full-color wheel allows you to choose any colour.
Choosing how you want notifications to appear is the final step in customising your Lock Screen. This is done via the Settings app. By default, Notifications are displayed in a new Stack format, with the most current notice appearing on top and older notifications fading into the background. With iOS 16 you may change the default to any of these views by going to Settings > Notifications. You can swipe up and down between them, whichever you choose.
How To Add Widgets on your iPhone’s Lock Screen:
With iOS 16 update you may now choose which widgets you want to see on your lock screen. While in editor mode, simply press the plus sign (+) in the box beneath the date and time to choose which widgets you want to see when your screen opens. Want to go out but weather is being a buzz kill, be well prepared by adding weather app widgets so you can keep track of it and make your plans accordingly. Keep track of your health by adding fitness widget to your lock screen.
Simple long press on lock screen and click on Add Widgets option, and you will get tons of options from which you can choose your Widget according you your need.
