How To Add IOS 16 Distance Apart Widget On Lock Screen

A few days ago, when I saw the viral TikTok video of iPhone users using iOS 16 to track distance, I became a fan of the widget. I’ve already made Stranger Things and Spiderman-based lockscreen designs. Still, iOS 16 with a remote widget is so cool and useful to make sure how far another person is without using the location service. That’s amazing, what are you saying?

Whether you want to keep an eye on your kid’s location or also wonder how far away your girlfriend is, using the distance widget on iOS 16 makes it easy to check their location from your iPhone’s lock screen.

However, Apple does not have the built-in widget or feature to add to the iOS 16 lock screen. Users need to install the third-party app called Widgetable. In this article, we will show you how to use the Apart widget on the iOS 16 lock screen to check the location of a person remotely.
