Apple recently rolled out iOS 16 which is the latest version of the operating system by the company. The latest iOS allows you to change the colour and font, apply filters and also use multiple information-rich widgets on the wall too.

With the latest features, you’ll be able to shortlist lock screen wallpapers from a collection of Emoji backgrounds, Colors, Apple Collections, Astronomy screens, and dynamic weather too.

In addition, the introduction of the lock screen widgets allows you to get information like time, battery level, weather, date, and more on the display. It also lets you use different Lock Screen wallpapers and switch between them in an instant. The new feature works in a similar way as the face customization works in the Apple Watch.
