Specifically, do you long for the lock screen notifications you saw in iOS 15? If your iPhone is running iOS 16, we’ll show you how to get them back.
With the release of iOS 16, Apple has reimagined the iPhone lock screen, making it possible, for the first time, to personalize the screen based on your most frequently used apps.
You can set multiple wallpapers, some of which will change automatically throughout the day; personalize the clock; add widgets to display additional information; link individual lock screens to specific purposes.
There are, however, some notification-related features that appear to have been neglected since iOS 15. Notifications in iOS 16 are now stacked at the bottom of the screen instead of being displayed in a list like they were in previous versions of iOS. at the display’s bottom.
This makes more room on the lock screen for admiring the beautiful new wallpaper, but some users don’t seem to like it as much as they did before. The good news is that you can customize how notifications look on the lock screen in iOS 16, and if you ever want to revert to the previous layout, you can do so from here. We break it down into steps so that you can follow along.
