APPLE just dropped its latest operating system for the iPhone, and with it came tons of new features.
One of Apple’s most talked-about tools right now is “Lock Screen Customization.”
The self-explanatory iOS 16 feature allows users to customize their lock screen with unique fonts and colors.
And for the first time, they can also customize the widgets on their lock screen for easy accessibility and convenience.
However, what many users don’t know is that there is a personalization app that complements the tool.
Dubbed Top Widgets, the software can be found in the Apple App Store.
What is ‘Top Widgets’?
In short, the app provides “plenty of widgets, app icons, and wallpapers for users to personalize their home screen like never before,” according to the App Store.
The application is developed by Chengdu Guluoying Technology Co., Ltd., an app development company based in Sichuan, China.
The app was first introduced in August 2020, shortly before Apple released iOS 14.
However, it only recently became popular thanks to the new feature of iOS 16.
In just two days, more than 1.3 million people downloaded the app.
Currently, the app is the number one download on the US App Store’s list of free apps.
Many iPhone users swear by the app and praise it on social media.
“Download top widgets for all widgets. It’s easy, customizing your phone makes you feel good,” one person tweeted.
“This app is great and super versatile,” said a second person, but they noted that it can be a little “buggy” at times.
“Okay, so this app is soooo good. I wanted a nice theme and background and this app was just AMAZING,” commented a third person.
How to customize your lock screen
To use Lock Screen customization, you need to unlock your iPhone with Face ID or Touch ID first.
Then long press on the lock screen to open the lock screen gallery.
Tap the ‘Add’ button in the top left corner and select a widget.
Then choose the widget size, tap ‘Add Widget’, then tap ‘Done’.
To add widgets from the Today View, all you need to do is touch and hold a widget until the quick actions menu opens.
Then select Edit Home Screen, drag the widget to the right edge of the screen and click Done.
