Apple adds new full-screen Lock Screen music player in iOS 16 beta
Apple has added a new full-screen music player to the Lock Screen with the latest beta of iOS 16, which shows users the art for the song or podcast they are listening to when they tap the cover from the Lock Screen.
Changes to the iPhone Lock Screen are arguably iOS 16’s most major update, bringing new personalization options that allow users to change the look of the date and time with type styles and colour choices, add widgets to their Lock Screen to get information at a glance, such as upcoming calendar events, the weather and battery levels, relocated notifications, and more.
The new update for iPhone includes the ability to recall and edit sent iMessages, schedule mail, collaborate via Messages, improved Focus options, Live Text for video, multi-stop routing in Maps, Apple Pay Later for users in the US, a rebuilt Home app, new accessibility tools, and more.
Anyone can install the iOS 16 beta, with Apple opening up the public beta cycle on Monday.
