After iOS 16, I have seen many people love the depth effect lock screen wallpapers and the astronomy wallpapers. The Astronomy wallpapers include Earth, Earth Detail, Moon, Moon Detail, and Solar System. Another cool thing I noticed is that Earth and Earth Detail Wallpapers show users’ locations on the lock screen.
Yes, that’s very charming. When the users set Earth or Earth Detail wallpaper on iOS 16 lock screen, it will show green dot on Earth view from space showing your current location on Earth in the lock screen background.
Since I saw the location iPhone users use on the Earth background on the iOS 16 lock screen with the green dot, I also wanted to show the location on the Earth background on the iOS 16 lock screen.
If you also want to enable Earth location wallpaper on iOS 16 lock screen, here is a simple guide to do it easily now.
