How to Change the Lock Screen Clock to Arabic Numerals in iOS 16


Adding widgets to the iPhone Lock Screen and customizing the look of the digital clock are two of the many new features in iOS 16, which is now in beta.

Apple has added the ability to display the time in Arabic, Arabic-Indic, or Devanagari symbols to the Lock Screen’s digital clock readout. Using the instructions below, you can set the clock back to using Arabic numerals to represent decimal values.

  • Touch or Face ID can be used to unlock your iPhone.
  • The gallery view may be activated by pressing and holding the Lock Screen.
  • Tap Customize once you’ve selected the Lock Screen wallpaper you’d like to change.
  • The editor panel can be accessed by tapping within the time window.
  • The Font & Color panel’s globe icon may be found in the panel’s upper-left corner.
  • From the drop-down menu, select Arabic.
  • Tap Done in the upper-right corner of the screen when you’re done editing.
  • To use the Lock Screen, go to the Wallpaper collection and tap on the Lock Screen.

You may change the current Lock Screen’s wallpaper at any moment by long-pressing the Lock Screen or by heading to Settings -> Wallpapers in the Settings app.
