Apple overhauled the Lock Screen in iOS 16, introducing all kinds of customization options that let you make your Lock Screen unique. You can choose widgets, customize the colors, and use emojis, photos, or built-in wallpapers.
This guide walks through all of the changes that Apple made to the iPhone’s Lock Screen, and how to use the new Lock Screen features.
Editing Your Lock Screen
If you’re familiar with the widget and Home Screen editing interfaces, editing a Lock Screen in iOS 16 is much the same. You can get to all the controls to experiment with by unlocking your iPhone with Face ID or Touch ID, swiping downwards if you’re not already on the Lock Screen, and then long pressing on the display.
