Perhaps the most exciting new iOS 16 feature that was discussed at WWDC last week was the new customizable iPhone Lock Screen. Unusual for Apple, the new Lock Screen has the opposite attributes of a walled garden which means that iPhone users will be able to set up the Lock Screen in the manner that they want it to appear.
“Typography is such a huge passion of ours, the design teams,’ and we have a number of other Apple design typefaces, even some non-Latin scripts. So, for the first time, we’re letting users choose their favorite.”
Personally, this writer finds that there is usually something new found on the manufacturer’s new product video that makes users truly desire the new phone. With the iPhone 11 Pro Max it was the battery life and the handset’s durability. With the Pixel 6 Pro it was the AI and Machine Learning Features like Magic Eraser and Live Translate that sold me on the device. And now, the customizable iPhone Lock Screen and the ability to edit iMessages have me (and countless others, we’re sure) drooling and contemplating a change.
