One of the biggest new features in iOS 16 is a completely redesigned iPhone lock screen. The new lock screen is fully customizable, allowing you to change colors and fonts, add widgets and new wallpapers, and more to make your ‌iPhone‌ unique.

Of course, even before ‌iOS 16‌, you could customize your lock screen with a wallpaper of your choice. ‌iOS 16‌ takes the lock screen wallpaper experience even further by introducing a new effect on images. With ‌iOS 16‌, users can choose a new multi-layered effect for wallpapers so that the subject of photos is placed in front of the time, creating an effect of depth.

‌iOS 16‌ will automatically suggest wallpaper photos based on your own personal photo library, but some users may want even more choices. To help you out, we’ve rounded up five apps for you to check out that offer wallpapers that work with iOS 16‌’s new lock screen depth effect.

Note: All apps are free to download and use, but most offer in-app purchases for an ad-free experience and to unlock premium wallpapers.

Along with new depth effect wallpapers, users can customize the font and color of the time and date on the lock screen. Additionally, users can now add widgets to their lock screen, providing timely information without having to unlock their phone. A growing number of third-party apps have introduced support for the ‌iOS 16‌ Lock Screen widget, and you can check out some of the early additions in our guide.
