iOS 16 Brings Full Screen Music Player Back to Lock Screen


With iOS 16, Apple brings the full-screen music player back to the lock screen, delivering an all-new view that puts album art front and center with controls at the bottom.

The full-screen music player on the lock screen was last available with iOS 10 and is now back with ‌iOS 16‌ as part of a lock screen overhaul. On ‌iOS 16‌, users will be able to change the lock screen font and colors, add new widgets, entirely new live wallpapers, and more.

It should be noted that in the first developer beta of ‌iOS 16‌, the full-screen music player does not seem to be present.

‌iOS 16‌ and iPadOS 16 are currently in beta testing with developers with a public beta scheduled for both in July. ‌‌iOS 16‌‌, iPadOS 16, macOS Ventura, and watchOS 9 will be available to users this fall.
