Support for iOS 16 Lock Screen Widgets in Applications

Apple added a customizable and editable Lock Screen with widgets in iOS 16. You can have a maximum of five distinct widgets added to your iPhone’s Lock Screen, including 4 widgets beneath the time and 1 widget above it. Apple provides widgets for apps such as Calendar, Clock, Weather, Reminders, and Fitness, but even the various third-party app developers can create widgets for the Lock Screen.

We have compiled a list of third-party applications that have integrated widget support as of today so that you can view the widget possibilities available to you. Note that if you intend to purchase an iPhone 14 Pro, widgets will be accessible even while the screen is off, courtesy of the Always-On display.


Flight monitoring application Flighty offers multiple widget configurations. Before your flight, you can view a countdown, and when you’re ready to board, you can view your gate code, seat number, and departure time. You can access your in-flight progress indicator while the aircraft is in the air; and you can even view your accurate gate of arrival, weather at your destination, and your baggage’s carousel information upon your landing.
