With iOS 16, Apple brought a new level of customisation for users, letting them manage multiple lock screens and adding dynamic transition effects and widgets into the mix. You can even control the font of the clock on the lock screen. Apple prefers users apply the same image as the lock screen and home screen wallpaper because it allows iOS 16 to add smoother transitions while unlocking the phone. This is not possible when you have a different home screen and lock screen wallpaper. However, if you still want a different wallpaper for the lock screen and home screen on iOS 16, here are some simple methods you can follow.
