Apple's an all-new Lock Screen experience in iOS 16

Apple today previewed iOS 16, which includes the largest update to the Lock Screen in history, as well as new sharing, communication, and intelligence features that will change the way users interact with their iPhones.

Users can customize their Lock Screen, store family photos in the iCloud Shared Photo Library, recall sent messages, schedule mail, and learn more with Live Text and Visual Look Up.

The subjects of photos are artfully set in front of the time on the Lock Screen with a new multilayered effect, creating a sense of depth.

The Lock Screen includes widgets inspired by Apple Watch complications, allowing you to quickly access information such as upcoming calendar events, the weather, battery levels, alarms, time zones, Activity ring progress, and more.

Notifications have been redesigned to roll up from the bottom, allowing users to see their personalized Lock Screen clearly.
