iOS 16 is here and comes with many new features. But one thing that grabbed my attention was the depth effect for the wallpapers on the Lock Screen.
So what’s the depth effect on Lock Screen wallpapers on iOS 16? It is a feature that can detect the subject from an image, lift it from the background, and sometimes place it ahead of the clock. Or, in much simpler terms, it gives a 3D effect to your Lock Screen wallpaper and provides you with a never-before-like experience.
That’s why we bring you some cool wallpapers for your iPhone’s Lock Screen that can work with the Depth Effect. So let’s get started!
How to download: To get these iOS 16 lock screen wallpaper on iPhone, tap Download and set it as your wallpaper.
Turn on Depth Effect for iPhone Lock Screen wallpaper
Before you move ahead, ensure that you have enabled the Depth Effect. Here’s how you can check it:
- Unlock your iPhone with Touch ID or Face ID.
