On an iPhone running ‌‌‌iOS 16‌‌‌, it’s possible to customize the Lock Screen in ways that were simply not possible before, thanks to new options to apply unique fonts, colors, filters, and, for the first time, add widgets.

One new feature in particular that is likely to prove popular is the ability to create an emoji-based wallpaper. You can select up to six emoji symbols to include in your wallpaper, apply a layout style, and even change the background color.

The following steps show you how to create an emoji wallpaper for your ‌iPhone‌’s Lock Screen in ‌iOS 16‌.

  1. Unlock your ‌‌iPhone‌‌ with Face ID or Touch ID, then press and hold the Lock Screen.
  2. Tap the blue + button, or swipe leftwards all the way to the end and then tap Add New.
  3. Tap the Emoji button in the top row of options.
  4. Using the emoji picker, add the emoji symbols you want to feature in the wallpaper, then tap the X to close the picker.

  7. Select a color and adjust the slider to get the hue that you want, then tap the X to close the color menu.
