Apple with its newest iOS 16 has brought a host of new customization options on the Lock Screen of iPhone models. From choosing your own wallpaper from the gallery to opting for different widgets, an iPhone user can handle it all. Not limited, iOS 16 is also allowing users to select the clock font style and colour of their own choice.

In short, it can be inferred that Apple‘s new personalization options are something iPhone users can really be proud of. The new features let users have more control over the lock screen and users can now edit the appearance of the digital clock.
