    A competitor site states states the devices that haven’t gotten the battery percentage back are the following:

    iPhone* XR,
    iPhone 11
    iPhone 12 mini
    iPhone 13 mini
    According to this iMore article,  16.1 will be bringing the battery percentage to the screen of the phones that didn’t initially get to have that option !! So I’ll wait till GM 16.1 is available. I’ve never run an betas on any of my phones.

    Question in regards to the way lock & Home Screen wallpapers get set on iOS 16.

    I’m not going to lie, I find it extremely frustrating setting a Home Screen wallpaper without changing the Lock Screen. I like to use different walls for the lock and home.

    I used to be able to go into my photo app, pick my wall and set it as Home Screen. With iOS 16 doing a simple task to keep my lock wall and my home wall different seems like a cluster f@Ck situation.

    Is there another way to set a Home Screen wallpaper WITHOUT going into Settings/Wallpaper/Customize…? Am I missing something here

    TIA for any help/explanation

    Yes, I felt that frustration as well. But after playing with it a few days, I figured how to work it. At least my way. Lol I have my own little tricks. When you finish customizing your lock screen. Tap done in the upper right. Then click your side power button to turn it off. Then click it again to turn back on. Your home screen should still be there.

    Yes, I’ve been doing that for when I set my Lock Screen.

    But seriously, there’s got to be an easier way… it just seems so @ss backwards that Apple set this up in this way.

    Agree 100%. And it's difficult to set a homescreen wallpaper only in the Photos app. I've had issues setting my custom wallpapers. Can't just tap to set now. I have to use my fingers to try and get it to fit. And some are really difficult. Especially the ones with borders around my icons and folders.

    Honestly it drives me insane…

    I almost don’t want to change my wallpaper on my Home Screen anymore as frustrating as it is.

    So far, I've created 18 lockscreen/homescreen combos. So I just switch from one to another combo.

    The one I use the most is a stack of 9 Van Gogh painting images that rotate each time that my phone unlocks. I may change it to rotating once per day, just so I see each image for a longer period of time.

    I also still have my original lock screen / wallpaper combo from iOS 15. I don't care all that much about widgets on the lock screen, so I may go back to that eventually. I don't love the stock wallpapers for iOS 16 compared with iOS 15, that's for sure.
