iOS 16: How to Change Your Lock Screen’s Photo Shuffle Frequency


Apple has made some significant changes to the Lock Screen experience in iOS 16, which is now in testing, including the ability to have the background alternate between a pre-selected selection of photographs.

You can choose various photos from your photo library and use the new Shuffle option to have the wallpaper alternate between them when you wake up, tap your iPhone screen, or on an hourly or daily schedule that you specify.

Once a Photo Shuffle Lock Screen has been built, you can change the frequency at any moment to suit your needs. You can see how to do it by following these steps.

  • Use Face ID or Touch ID to unlock your iPhone after waking it up.
  • Hold down the Lock Screen button while pressing it to bring up the wallpaper gallery.
  • To modify the shuffle frequency, scroll to the Photo Shuffle Lock Screen wallpaper if necessary, then tap Customize.
  • In the bottom-right corner of the screen, click the ellipsis button (the three encircled dots).
  • Select Daily, Hourly, On Wake, or On Tap after tapping Shuffle Frequency.
  • After you’re finished, press Done in the upper-right corner, and then tap your Photo Shuffle wallpaper in the gallery to make it active.

Now that the shuffle frequency has been changed, your shuffle wallpaper will be active. Depending on the option you select, you can tap the screen of your iPhone to change the photo, wake it up, or wait for it to change on its own.
