All the slick new things you can do with Lock Screen customization on Apple’s new iOS 16 mobile operating system have left jailbreakers stuck on older firmware salivating. Of course, jailbreak developers have already ported some of those features to older firmware and devices.
One of the fascinating new features of iOS 16 is the ability to add small widgets to your iPhone Lock Screen. Once added, they let you see the battery status, weather conditions, stock performance, alarms, reminders, news snippets, calendar events, fitness stats, Home accessories, and more. Even third-party apps can make widgets for the Lock Screen.
This tutorial will show you how to add, customize, and remove widgets from the Lock Screen. We will also go over several other tidbits such as widget limits, alignment, and placement.
iOS 16 supports widgets on the Lock Screen. And the battery widget is one of the most popular ones that people add to their Lock Screen.
In this tutorial, we show you how to customize the Lock Screen batteries widget and set it to always display the battery level of the device you want - be it your iPhone or your Apple Watch, AirPods, etc.
While most people use Face ID or Touch ID to unlock their modern iPhones and iPads, there are still times when you’ll be required to enter your passcode. Examples include after rebooting your device, after pressing and holding certain buttons on your device, failing a biometric authentication attempt, and when you don’t have biometrics set up on your device.
iOS 16 has revamped the iPhone Lock Screen and added several new features, like tiny widgets, different clock fonts, saving multiple Lock Screens and effortlessly switching between them, and more.
Another cute little addition is using emojis as your Lock Screen and Home Screen wallpaper. So, if there is a specific emoji or set of emojis you love, you can easily make a wallpaper out of those with various colors and patterns.
iOS 16 seems to force you to use the same image as your Home Screen and Lock Screen wallpaper. But, after following the steps outlined below, you can use two different images as your Home Screen and Lock Screen wallpapers on iPhone running iOS 16.

Your iPhone’s Lock Screen displays the date just underneath the time so that you can always reference what day it is from a convenient place. But it’s worth noting that some people like to format their dates differently than others.
One of several things that seems to be receiving a facelift in the upcoming iOS 16 software update from Apple is the Now Playing widget that appears on the Lock Screen. Unfortunately, this means those who are staying behind to remain jailbroken will have a dated Now Playing widget aesthetic going forward.
Whenever you set up a brand new device or begin to set one up following a factory restore, you’re greeted with a beautiful ‘hello’ screen that walks you through the setup process.
