What New Apple is Bringing in Lock Screen?

So, if you want a different wallpaper for your home screen and your lock screen, you can now do that. You can also customize the look of your apps on the Lock Screen. So, if you want your Facebook app to have a different icon or name on the Lock Screen, you can now do that too.

Should You Install Beta iOS 16 on iPhone or Wait for the Official Release?
iOS 16 is coming out soon, and there are already a lot of people wondering if they should install the beta or wait for the official release. Here are some things to consider before you make your decision.
The first thing you need to know is that installing a beta version of iOS comes with some risks. Beta versions are not as stable as the final release, so there’s a chance that something could go wrong and cause problems with your iPhone. If you’re someone who relies on their iPhone for work or other important tasks, then it’s probably not worth taking the risk of installing a beta version. However, if you’re someone who likes to be on the cutting edge of technology and doesn’t mind dealing with occasional bugs, then installing the iOS 16 beta might be a good idea for you.
Just keep in mind that you’ll need to sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program and install the beta profile on your iPhone before you can download and install the beta. If you’re still not sure if you should install the iOS 16 beta or wait for the official release, then consider how much free time you have. If you have a lot of free time and don’t mind dealing with bugs, then go ahead and install the beta. However, if you only have a limited amount of time or just want to wait for a stable version of iOS 16, then it’s probably better to wait for the official release. No matter what you decide, just make sure to backup your iPhone before installing any software updates, just in case something goes wrong.
