Apple highlights iOS 16 Lock Screen personalization feature in new video
Apple is touting the new Lock Screen personalization features coming to iOS 16 in a new video, showing how users can create unique Lock Screens for their iPhone with custom fonts, colors, pictures, widgets, and more.
Coming later this year, the Lock Screen is becoming more personal with the option to change the look of the date and time with type styles and colour choices. The Lock Screen will offer widgets that take inspiration from Apple Watch complications, making it easy to get information at a glance, such as upcoming calendar events, the weather, battery levels, alarms, time zones, Activity ring progress, and more.
A new Lock Screen gallery will feature a range of options for inspiration, such as Apple collections, which include Pride and Unity to celebrate special cultural moments; a Weather wallpaper to see live weather conditions as they change throughout the day; and an Astronomy wallpaper for views of the Earth, moon, and solar system. Users can also create Lock Screens using their favourite emoji or colour combinations. With multiple Lock Screens, users can switch between their favourites with just a swipe, and with iOS 16, notifications have been redesigned to roll up from the bottom, ensuring that users have a clear view of their personalised Lock Screen.
