How to Disable Lockscreen Widgets in iOS 10 on iPhone

If you don’t want widgets to appear on Lockscreen, you can disable Lock screen widgets in iOS 10 on your iPhone

iOS 10 has completely revamped a few features including Lockscreen. With the latest iOS ecosystem installed on your iPhone, you can reply to any message, access widgets with information like current weather, upcoming events and more.

Though I’m delighted to have such a user-friendly Lockscreen, it may not go down well to those who prefer more privacy. Fortunately, iOS 10 lets you turn off Lockscreen widgets on your device.

The newest operating system has got more than 100 nice features. Raise to Wake is my favorite Lockscreen feature. Once you have turned it on, it wakes the screen of your device whenever you pick it up. Hence, you don’t have to press the Home button to wake your device.
