The lock screen is one of the most used places, so you must modify it more. With the older One UI, the customization ability was limited but now with one UI 5.0, you can customize the clock, the clock font, shortcuts, texts, and others. So, in this guide, you’ll learn how to customize the One UI 5.0 lock screen on Samsung Galaxy S22, and S21 running Android 13.
What’s new in One UI 5?
Compared to Android 12, Android 13 is a relatively small upgrade, but Samsung is adding a couple of its own improvements to the platform. Redesigned lock screen, which supports new clock designs, video backgrounds, and more, is one of One UI 5’s major new features. Similar to iOS 16, you may now modify them straight from the lock screen. One UI 5 offers a “fresh new design and feel,” according to Samsung. One UI 5 incorporates “Modes,” which may be tweaked to change settings for “various sections of your life,” much like Apple’s most recent significant upgrade.
The business seems to have accomplished its goals. It’s time for us to take a closer look at these new lock screen customization features and provide you with a step-by-step tutorial so that you may hopefully make the most of the new lock screen capabilities now that One UI 5.0 is publicly accessible (for the Galaxy S22). Here is all you need to know.
