The iOS 16 operating system for Apple’s iPhones was just released by the company, and it includes a number of new features that let users personalize the interface to their preferences.
The lock screen is one of the places that received a ton of additional customization choices, adding support for a number of things, including the first-ever inclusion of widgets on the lock screen.
Additionally, it has a function called “depth effect” that suggests using it while making a lock screen and works well with photos of people from the photo library. When enabled, the subject or object in the picture will have a layered appearance, much like photos taken in Portrait mode on the Apple Watch.
We’ll walk you through each step of disabling the Lock Screen Depth Effect on your Apple iPhone running iOS 16 in this step-by-step tutorial.
How to disable the Lock Screen Depth Effect on Apple iPhone
Step 1: Open the lock screen on your Apple iPhone and unlock it with Face ID or Touch ID.
Step 2: After that, press and hold on to the lock screen to open the wallpaper gallery.
Step 3: When the wallpaper gallery opens, go to the wallpaper with the depth effect and tap on the “Customize” option.
Step 4: Tap on the ellipsis icon from the bottom-right corner and then tap “Depth Effect” to uncheck the option.
Step 5: Once it’s done, tap the “Done” button from the top-right corner and then tap the wallpaper again.
There you go. The Lock Screen Depth Effect will be turned off for the chosen wallpaper when you follow the step-by-step instructions above, and it will begin to appear as it should without the effects.
