The new personalized iOS 16 Lock Screen feature, on the other hand, is likely to draw the most attention. It’s the most personalization support we’ve seen from Apple on the iPhone, expanding on what it did with iOS 14 when it unveiled widgets and some of its cool Apple Watch faces.
How to Change the Lock Screen
The most noticeable update for most iPhone users will undoubtedly be the redesigned lock screen experience, which introduces new layouts, color schemes, and quick-glance information inspired by the Apple Watch.
The emphasis is on customization. Not only can you change the layout of the lock screen, with multiple font and color options for the time and date, but you can also add entertaining effects with a swipe. Those effects are produced automatically based on your background to keep things neat and on the theme, but they may be modified if necessary.
