iOS 16 is a major update for Apple devices and adds a ton of new features that Android users have been using since the very beginning. As well as adding some basic quality life improvements like the % icon back in the battery icon and the ability to add widgets to the lock screen. Apple has also added the ability to customise the lock screen clock in a variety of different ways.

The new iOS 16 clock customisation feature allows you to quickly and easily change the colour and font style of the clock. While it would be nice to also have the ability to manually change the position of the clock that feature is still not yet available. But at least we have something to start with. Perhaps they will add more options at a later date. To begin, the first thing you need to do is download and install iOS 16 on your iPhone or other iOS devices.
