How to Remove a Lock Screen Wallpaper on iOS 16

After installing iOS 16 on my iPhone, I couldn’t wait to create some personalized lock screens on my beloved iPhone. The Stranger Things and Spiderman based lock screens are still my favorite iOS 16 lock screen that I still have on the iPhone. I’ve also tried weather, emojis, and many other lock screens. But after a while I realized that my iPhone’s lock screen was too cluttered. That’s why I had to remove some lock screens on iOS 16.

While creating designs for multiple lock screens, I saw about ten lock screens on my iPhone. So I tried to remove some lock screens on my iPhone. It was confusing because I didn’t know how to remove a lock screen on iOS 16 as everything was new after spending too much time on the iOS 16 lock screen. I finally learned that it was so easy to remove a lock screen from iOS 16.
