If you're new to iPhone, Apple recently opened up the Lock Screen to a wealth of personalization options not seen before. ‌iPhone‌ users can change not only the wallpaper but also the clock font and color, and with the addition of widgets, users can customize the look and control the information density.

  1. Unlock your ‌‌‌iPhone‌‌‌ with Face ID or Touch ID, then press and hold the Lock Screen.
  2. Swipe to the Lock Screen that you want to adjust and then tap Customize.
