How to Set Different Wallpapers on Your iPhone's Lock Screen and Home Screen

With iOS 16, Apple made it even easier to customize the Lock Screen. You can now change the font and style of the clock, add widgets, and use weather and astronomy wallpapers that change based on the time of day. So, it also changed how you set a different background for your Home Screen than for your Lock Screen. Read on to find out how to do it.

You'll note that iOS 16 advises using the same wallpaper for the Home Screen when you design the Lock Screen for the first time. This is because, if the backgrounds are the identical, Apple uses dynamic transitions to some wallpapers when moving between the Lock Screen and the Home Screen.


You may change the wallpaper on your Home Screen if you first chose to "Set as Wallpaper Pair" while making your Lock Screen but later changed your mind. Just adhere to the directions below.

  1. Unlock your ‌iPhone‌ with Face ID or Touch ID
  2. Swipe to a previously customized wallpaper, then tap Customize.
  3. Choose the Home Screen option.2different-home-lock-screen-wallpapers
  4. To change the background color and access color swatches, hit the Color or Gradient buttons. You may also tap the Photos button to choose a different picture. If you'd like, you may additionally blur the image.
  5. If a fresh image was chosen, you may swipe through filter previews, pinch to crop the image, and hit the ellipsis button to customize the depth effect.
  6. Tap Done in the top-right corner.
  7. Tap Done again on the editing screen to finish and save your selection.1different-home-lock-screen-wallpapers

Keep in mind that you may change your current Home Screen and Lock Screen preference whenever you like: Simply long-press the lock screen to get the gallery view, touch Customize, then choose either the lock screen or the home screen. As an alternative, you may edit wallpaper combinations by heading to Settings -> Wallpaper and navigating through your library of wallpapers.
