How to customize your iPhone lock screen and add widgets


(Pocket-lint) – When Apple released iOS 16 in September, it introduced the ability to customize the iPhone lock screen. We are not talking about just changing your wallpaper. Now, you can change the entire look of the lock screen, from colors to fonts, and you can add widgets that display information from your favorite apps. You can also create more than one lock screen to switch between if you want to change your beauty. Additionally, if you set up what Apple calls focus, you can associate that focus with your new custom lock screen. The idea is that when you want to reduce distractions like notifications, you can switch to a specific custom lock screen with focus enabled.
