How to Customize Your Lock Screen on iPhone iOS 14
Are you tired of looking at the same old lock screen wallpaper on your iPhone? If you’re running iOS 14, you can now customize your lock screen with new wallpapers, widgets, and app shortcuts.
In this blog post, we’ll show you how to change your lock screen wallpaper and add widgets and app shortcuts. Let’s get started!
How to change your lock screen wallpaper on iPhone iOS.
Choose a new wallpaper
You can change your lock screen wallpaper on iPhone iOS in two ways: using the Settings app or using Photos.
If you want to use a different photo each time you wake up your device, go to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper. You’ll see three categories of wallpapers to choose from: Dynamic (which animates your wallpaper according to time of day), Stills (which are photos that don’t move), and Live (which are live photos that you can set to play when you wake your device). To preview how the wallpaper will look, touch and hold it. Then choose whether you want to set it as your Home screen, Lock screen, or both.
If you have Live Photo turned on for your Lock screen, the photo might move when you press and hold the Lock screen.
If you want to use one of your own photos as your wallpaper, go to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper > Camera Roll. If you don’t see Camera Roll at first, tap All Photos first, then tap Select in the upper-right corner and choose Camera Roll. Tap the photo that you want to use and tap Set. Then choose whether you want to set it as your Home screen, Lock screen, or both.
Crop and set your new wallpaper
When you select a new wallpaper, it might come with options to change the way it looks. For example, you can choose to have it zoom in so that it fills the screen, or tile so that it repeats. You can also move the image around so that it’s placed where you want it on your screen. To do this, just touch and hold the image until you see the editing tools appear. Then use your finger to move the image around or pinch to zoom in or out. When you’re done, tap Set.
If you want to use an animated Live Photo for your wallpaper, go to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper > Live Photos and select the photo that you want to use. To preview how the wallpaper will look, touch and hold it. When you find a photo that you want to use, tap Set. Then choose whether you want to set it as your Home screen, Lock screen, or both.
How to add Widgets to your lock screen on iPhone iOS.
Choose the widget you want to add
You can choose from a variety of widgets, including weather, calendar, stocks, and more. To find the complete list of available widgets, go to Settings > Widgets. Tap and hold on a widget to move it around or delete it.
Customize the widget
Once you’ve added a widget to your lock screen, you can customize it to better suit your needs. To do this, tap and hold on the widget, then tap the “Edit” button. From here, you can change the size of the widget, as well as its position on the screen.
Add the widget to your lock screen
Once you’re satisfied with your customizations, tap “Done” to add the widget to your lock screen. You can add multiple widgets to your lock screen by repeating these steps.
How to add App Shortcuts to your lock screen on iPhone iOS.
Choose the app you want to add a shortcut for
Adding an app shortcut to your lock screen is a quick way to access your favorite apps without having to unlock your iPhone. To do this, simply go to the Shortcuts app and tap the + icon in the top right corner. Then, select Add Action and choose the Open App action. Choose the app you want to add a shortcut for, then tap Next. Finally, give your shortcut a name and tap Done.
Add the app shortcut to your lock screen
Now that you’ve created your app shortcut, it’s time to add it to your lock screen. To do this, go to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper > Lock Screen. Scroll down and tap Edit in the bottom left corner. Here, you can rearrange or delete existing shortcuts as well as add new ones by tapping on the + icon in the top right corner. Simply select your app shortcut from the list and tap Add in the top right corner. Your app shortcut will now appear on your lock screen!
