Apple intends to bring iPhone-style lock screen customizations to iPads with the release of iPadOS 17, claims a leaker who has shared precise details in the past.
According to the Holder of the Twitter account @analyst941Apple will not only bring the custom lock screen options it introduced to iPhones in iOS 16 to iPad models, but it also plans to include additional updates in iOS 17.
Currently, iPad users running iPadOS 16 don’t have access to any of the lock screen customization tools iPhone users enjoy, leaving much of the screen unused. But if the latest rumor is true, iPadOS 17 will feature the following options for iPad:
- lock screen widgets
- Types of wallpapers like Photo Shuffle, Emoji, and Weather
- Tones and styles of photos.
- wallpaper depth effect
- Clock style customization
- Lock screens linked to focus modes
- wallpaper gallery
On Tuesday, a separate rumor claimed that iOS 17 will bring new lock screen font size options to iPhones, as well as a button to share custom lock screen layouts with other iPhone users. Leaker @analyst941 states that iPadOS 17 will also share new “tuned” lock screen customizations for iOS 17, which could be a reference to the same settings.
The anonymous source behind this rumor leaked precise information about the Dynamic Island of the iPhone 14 Pro in the MacRumors Forums before the device was announced last year. The same tipster allegedly leaked details about the new solid-state buttons coming on the iPhone 15 Pro models, but they have since. withdrew the claim and now agrees with other sources that the new buttons have been pushed back to next year’s Pro models.
Additionally, @analyst941 earlier this month claimed that several other new features could be coming to iPhone with iOS 17, including improvements to search, the dynamic island, control center, and more. However, they still don’t have a long-term track record with rumors, so there’s no guarantee that the most recent information they shared is accurate.
Apple is expected to preview iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 during the WWDC 2023 keynote on June 5. For more information on what to expect in the new software, click on the iOS 17 tag below.
