The latest iOS update for your iPhone completely changes the lock screen.

Here are three essential Apple lock screen hacks you need to know…
You can create multiple lock screens
If you create a second lock screen, the first one won’t go away.
It’s still available for you to refer to.
Just press and hold on the lock screen, then swipe left or right to choose what you like.
You can save multiple lock screens based on your mood or activity.
Link your lock screen to a focus
You can also set a focus on a specific lock screen.
Go into your focus settings and customize the lock screen for that focus.
For example, if you enable Sleep Focus for bed, you might want a darker lock screen.
You could set it to a navy blue or some kind of star scene.
It can also be worth creating a professional lock screen for work – with different widgets too.
Edit your fonts
You’ve probably already figured out that you can add widgets to the lock screen.
But you can also customize it further by editing the font and color of your date and time.
You can choose from a variety of different fonts and colors to make your lock screen stand out.
And you can have different options on multiple lock screens, so you never get bored.
