It’s finally here! iOS 16, the brand new Apple operating system update that we have been waiting for, has arrived, making digital landfall with a bang. The hype on this update is pretty much focused on the many customization features that it is set to offer, and from what we are seeing so far, the whole thing did deliver and more.
New iPad Wallpaper Customization Features 😍😍😍
While the iOS 16 offers a good number of customization options, one that caught many folks’ attention, though, is an expansion of the personalized wallpapers feature. The improvements to this feature are available on both iOS and iPad, and this is something much appreciated by the latter’s users given their device’s notoriously limited customization options.
In particular, Apple has rolled out a new Lock Screen Gallery from which you can access a large library of wallpapers. This collection includes themed backgrounds designed mainly for inspiration, including Pride and Unity which celebrate progressive cultural milestones. Other nifty wallpapers include Astronomy, which provides beautiful views from all over the solar system.
The new multiple lock screen feature is also notable in its own right. It lets users create different themed wallpapers that they can easily switch with a simple swipe. This opens up plenty of possibilities; you can create a mood gallery, or perhaps a set of wallpapers that can match the current weather or celebration.
How Do You Personalize Your iPad’s Wallpaper in iOS 16? ☝️
That said, many are curious as to how they can personalize their iPad’s homescreen and lock screen backgrounds in iOS 16. Thankfully, we’re on a familiar ride with this one, as there isn’t much change from the operating system’s previous iterations. Here’s how it’s currently done:
- Go to Settings.
- In the Settings menu, find and select Wallpapers & Lock Screens.
- You should see a whole list of options to choose from. By default, you have the following options: Astronomy, Collections, Color, Emoji, People, Photos, Photo Shuffle, and Weather. The Photos and Photo Shuffle options offer the highest degree of customization, as they practically lets you choose images that you can display as your wallpaper.
That’s it — now you’ve customized your iPad’s wallpaper. Unfortunately, some of the iOS 16’s personalizations available on iPhone — mainly lock screen widgets — is not yet available on the iPad. They may be made available in future updates, but in the meantime, you can always do workarounds with third-party customization apps like ScreenKit.
