How to Set Dynamic Weather Lock Screen Wallpaper on iPhone in iOS 16

We are having so much fun creating different Lock Screen wallpapers on our iPhones. Thanks to the new customization options in iOS 16, the Lock Screen has become a playground for our ideas. You can change fonts, colors, wallpapers, and even add Lock Screen widgets to display reminders, calendar events, and more. You also get access to dynamic wallpapers that enhance the iPhone’s Lock Screen even more. One of these dynamic wallpapers is the weather wallpaper. Here is how you can set dynamic weather Lock Screen wallpaper on iPhone in iOS 16.

Set Current Weather as Lock Screen Wallpaper on iPhone

If you have used the weather app, you will know that the app displays a dynamic background based on the current weather conditions in your area. The weather wallpaper takes that background and displays it on your iPhone’s Lock Screen. It looks fabulous and lets you take a peek at current weather conditions without opening any app.

1. Unlock your iPhone and touch and hold on to the Lock Screen to enter edit mode.
