How to edit the new iPhone iOS Lock Screen and add widgets to your wallpaper.

If you've tried to edit your iOS 16 Lock Screen and have been left scratching your head, it could be because you went into the Settings app first.

This is where iOS users used to change their wallpaper, but if you want to Customize your Lock Screen, you must do things a little differently.

Here's a step-by-step guide for customizing your iOS 16 Lock Screen...

  • First, wake your iPhone from sleep mode, then press and hold it anywhere on it.
  • You will see an interface with a big Customise button at the bottom where you can customize your Lock Screen. In the lower right-hand corner, press the Plus button.
  • Once you've done that, you'll be able to switch between your old (iOS 15) wallpaper and the one you've just added. Swipe to the new one and then tap Customize.
  • This is where you will customize your Lock Screen. You will see round boxes appear around the date, the time, and just below the time section. Any of these boxes can be edited by clicking on them.
  • By tapping the date at the top, you can add a widget that shows alongside it. This allows you to quickly access a variety of information, with widgets available for things like reminders, the weather, stock market information, and more.
  • You can change the font style for the time as well as the color for the date, time, and widget information by tapping the time section. There are eight different fonts available, as well as various pre-set colors - but you can also use a picker button (found on the far right side) to choose whatever color for the font that you like. 
  • Finally, you can add extra widgets by clicking the box below the time. Because there is only so much space, you'll have to explore to see what widgets can fit.
  • If you frequently change your Lock Screen, you can save a variety of different designs that you can quickly change by long-pressing anywhere on your Lock Screen and swiping to another one you've previously saved.
  • Apple also provides a variety of pre-made Lock Screen designs with amazing animations, such as Weather and Astronomy. You may even make a wallpaper entirely out of emojis of your choosing.

    How do I add widgets to the Lock Screen?

    • You can add widgets to your iPhone's lock screen in two places: above and below the clock. The thin space at the top of your screen would most likely display the date by default, but you can tap it to change it to another widget.
    • The main widget area can be found below the clock and may hold up to four widgets (or none if you don't want to obscure your lock screen photo). Simply tap where it says Add Widgets to get the various options.
    • No matter how many you select, they will remain centered in the space, and you may remove any that you don't want by tapping the minus icon in the top left corner. To reorder them, press and hold a widget until it expands slightly under your finger, then drag it to the desired location. To make your selections, press the X or tap outside of the widget menu.
    • When you're ready, hit Done in the top right corner of the screen and bask in the glow of your new lock screen.


    How do I change the clock on my lock screen IOS 16?

    • Long-press on the iPhone lock screen after updating to iOS 16. This will take you to the new Lock Screen gallery.
    • If you want to replace an old default Apple wallpaper, you must first create a new one. Otherwise, go to the bottom of the screen and tap Customize to change the current wallpaper.
    • Tap the time text on the clock. This will bring up a new Font and Color panel.
    • In the panel, select one of the other font options. The grid's second option is the old thin iOS 15 typefaces.
    • After selecting a new font, press the 'x' button to end the panel.
    • To save your changes, tap the 'Done' icon at the top-right of the screen. To confirm, tap 'Set as Wallpaper Pair'. 

    What's new in iOS 16?

    • iMessages can be altered and unsent. Within 15 minutes of sending a message, users can edit or unsend it in iMessage. 
    • Schedule emails in advance. iPhones' built-in Mail software will allow users to plan emails to send later.
    • Apple Pay Later. This feature allows consumers to pay for Apple Pay purchases in four installments over six weeks. In iOS 16, Apple Wallet will also make it easy to send digital cards or home keys via messaging.
    • The Apple Home app has been updated. Apple updated the Home app to better display things like several cameras in and around your home.
    • Artificial intelligence automatically sorts, edits, and translates photos. Apple is using artificial intelligence to translate text in images and videos taken by users. You can also cut off a subject from a picture, such as a person, and use it as a sticker in images or other apps. In a later version, iOS 16 will also automatically share photos with people it recognizes in the photo, such as friends or family members.
    • Handoff with FaceTmei. This function allows you to transfer a FaceTime call from your iPhone to another device, such as your Mac or iPad, without having to disconnect. It will also switch any Bluetooth headphones you have linked to your iPhone to the new device. It will, however, require the most recent Mac and iPad updates, which are due later this fall.

    How long should iOS Update16 take?

    A complete iOS update includes downloading the new iOS installation package, installing it, and configuring iPhone. The process will be affected by your internet speed and the quality of your hardware. On average, updating to the latest iOS takes roughly 30 minutes.
