2. New lock screen widgets

There are new widgets for the lock screen of your iPhone: Sleep (English: Sleep) and Medications (English: Medications). With the Sleep app you can view the data of your sleeping habits. The Medication widget lets you know when it’s time to take your medication.

3. Customize the always-on screen

In iOS 16.2 you now have the option to choose what is visible on your screen when you use the always-on function. In iOS 16.1, you always see the time, your notifications, the lock screen widgets and the background on the always-on screen.

In iOS 16.2 this will change and you can then choose what is visible on the always-on screen. With the update it becomes possible, among other things, to switch off the background. Deactivating notifications is also an option.
