One of the biggest new features in iOS 16 is the completely redesigned iPhone lock screen. The new lock screen is completely customizable, allowing you to change colors and fonts, add widgets and new wallpapers, and more to make your iPhone unique.


Of course, even before ‌iOS 16‌, you can customize your lock screen with the wallpaper of your choice. ‌IOS 16‌ enhances your lock screen wallpaper experience even more by introducing a new effect to your pictures. With ‌iOS 16‌, users can choose a new multi-layer effect for wallpapers to have the photo theme set ahead of time, creating a depth effect.

‌IOS 16‌ will automatically suggest wallpaper photos based on your personal Photos library, but some users may want even more options. To help you out, we rounded up five apps to see which offer wallpapers that work with the new ‌iOS 16‌ lock screen effect.

Note: All apps are free to download and use, but most offer in-app purchases for an ad-free experience and unlock premium wallpapers.

In addition to the new depth effect wallpapers, users can customize the font and color of the time and date on the lock screen. In addition, users can now add widgets to the lock screen, offering up-to-date information without having to unlock the phone. A growing number of third-party apps have introduced support for iOS 16 lock screen widgets, and you can check out some of the early add-ons in our guide.
