iOS 16: How to Style Your iPhone’s Lock Screen Picture


Apple has included a number of choices to modify the iPhone Lock Screen in iOS 16, which is presently in beta. One of these options is the capacity to apply various “looks” or “styles” to your selected wallpaper image. How to do it is described in this article.

Apple wanted to make it easy and enjoyable for iPhone owners to design something that had the polished appearance of a magazine cover with the Lock Screen in iOS 16.

In order to do this, iOS 16 analyzes Lock Screen images using machine learning and offers you many different “looks” to choose from. But because looks are intelligently generated precisely to style the selected picture, the final product is more interesting than simply applying a filter to a photograph.


You can choose and apply a look to a new photo-based Lock Screen in iOS 16 by following the steps below.

  • Press and hold the Lock Screen after using Face ID or Touch ID to unlock your iPhone.
  • Swipe leftward all the way to the end and then hit Add New, or press the blue + icon.
  • In the top row of options, tap the Photos button.
  • Select a photo to use from your Photos library.
  • Screen Lock
  • To preview the available automatically created looks for this image, swipe left and right on the Lock Screen editor.
  • Tap Done once you’ve decided on the desired appearance.
  • To activate the Lock Screen you just made, tap it.

Keep in mind that you may change the current Lock Screen at any moment by heading to Settings -> Wallpaper & Lock Screens or by long pressing the Lock Screen to bring up the gallery view.
