Aesthetic iPhone Lock Screen

The iOS 16 update has opened up a world of opportunity when it comes to iPhone customization – with new lock screen features that allow you to change the font, colors, create Depth Effect wallpapers, and add widgets! Beyond these nifty features, here are a few ways to get your lock screen looking as aesthetic as can be.

Lock Screen Wallpapers

Step one: picking a great lock screen-oriented wallpaper that matches your aesthetic! Some wallpapers are designed just for the lock screen (instead of with your home screen as well), such as Depth Effect wallpapers and calendar wallpapers. Here are some of our picks!

Depth Effect Lock Screen Wallpapers

Depth Effect wallpapers bring any lock screen to life in an instant, allowing your subject to pop out of your screen, even overlaying on the clock. As long as the subject is clear from the background, you can create a Depth Effect wallpaper out of anything – but here are a few aesthetic picks to get started with!

Heads up: with lock screen widgets on, you won’t be able to apply a Depth Effect wallpaper. But the good news is you can create multiple lock screens for different looks and uses.
