Learn about all the new Lock Screen features Apple introduced for the iPhone with iOS 16.

With iOS 16 on the iPhone, Apple reimagined what the lock screen could do. What does this mean, reimagined? You can now have multiple lock screens and easily switch between them, you can have them switch with Focus modes, you can blur the background on the Home Screen (my favorite feature), you can add widgets to the Home Screen, notifications are easier to access, and more! In this video, i go through the major new features for the new lock screen on the iPhone with iOS 16.

  • New Lock Screen features for the iPhone include (descriptions from Apple):
  • Lock Screen gallery: For inspiration on how to make the Lock Screen your own, browse a gallery of many options, each with a unique backdrop, stylized view of the date and time, and information you can see at a glance.
  • Lock Screen switching: You can switch your Lock Screen throughout the day. Touch and hold it, and then swipe.
  • Lock Screen editing: It’s easy to customize the font, color, or placement of elements on your Lock Screen by tapping the element.
  • Stylized date and time: Expressive font styles and color choices allow you to customize the look of the date and time on your Lock Screen.
  • Multilayered photo effect: Photo subjects are dynamically displayed in front of the time to make the subject of the photo pop.
  • Suggested photos: iOS intelligently suggests photos from your library that look great on the Lock Screen.
  • Photo shuffle: See a set of photos shuffle automatically on your Lock Screen. Set the cadence for how often your Lock Screen updates with a new photo, or let iOS surprise and delight you throughout the day.
  • Photo styles: Apply styles to photos on the Lock Screen that automatically change the color filter, tinting, and font style to complement each other.
  • Widgets on the Lock Screen: Choose to display a set of widgets as part of your Lock Screen to glance at information like the weather, time, date, battery levels, upcoming calendar events, alarms, time zones, and Activity ring progress.
  • Lock Screens made for Focus: iOS suggests a relevant set of Lock Screens for provided Focus options, such as a data-rich Lock Screen while you’re using the Work Focus or a photo Lock Screen while you’re using the Personal Focus.
  • Apple collections: Choose from a set of dynamic, classic, and landscape Lock Screens created especially for iOS 16. Apple collections include Lock Screens to celebrate special cultural moments, like Pride and Unity.
  • New design for Now Playing: With Live Activities, you can expand Now Playing controls to a full-screen view that celebrates album art while you listen along.
  • New notification design: The use of bold text and images makes notifications visually pop.
