Apple's iOS 16 lock screen customization feature does not support iPadOS 16 system

Apple released iOS 16, iPadOS 16 systems, and has released the first developer preview Beta.

In iOS 16, Apple gave users an unprecedented level of lock screen customization, allowing them to change fonts and colors, add widgets, and more. However, none of these customizations will appear in iPadOS 16.

While in most versions iOS and iPadOS share many of the same features, this year there seems to be a greater separation between the two platforms. On iPadOS 16, at least in the initial first beta version, users can't customize the lock screen with custom widgets, colors, and themes. Apple just changed the default font for the clock.

Although iPadOS 16 lacks lock screen customization, it's still an important release. Most notably, Apple brought window support to the M1-based iPad through a new feature called "Stage Manager." iPadOS 16 also brings desktop-level app features to the iPad, such as new context menus, undo and redo in more apps, and more.

iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 are scheduled to release public betas in July, and developer preview betas are currently available. iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura, and watchOS 9 will all be publicly released this fall.
