The change of seasons means fall is in the air and Halloween is right around the corner. It’s the time of pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, and pumpkin carving. If you’re sprucing up your home, why not switch out your phone lock screen to fit the fall vibe? The new iOS 16 has been all the hype with its customizable lock screen and new widgets. Spice up your iPhone lock screen wallpaper with a fall or Halloween-themed look with these custom iPhone and Etsy designs.
Etsy is like a Pinterest board for iPhone lock screens with hundreds of creators selling their designs for cheap — most iOS 16 widget, app icon, and wallpaper bundles are under $5. The wallpapers are high quality (some are hand drawn!) and the options are endless. Literally, one bundle claims to have over three million icons. Once you’ve made a purchase, the digital designs can be downloaded instantly from Etsy.
If designs aren’t your thing, the new iOS offers plenty of creative ways for you to channel fall spirit into your lock screen. Go minimal with a gradient of fall hues that perfectly complement your phone, or show off your fall personality in emojis. You need to try it for yourself, it’s such a mood.
To make an iPhone lock screen with emojis, start by adding a new wallpaper. From the iPhone wallpaper options, select Emoji. From there, you’ll be able to choose up to six emojis to make up your wallpaper. Need ideas? How about some fall leaves 🍂🍁or a hot latte ☕🧡 or apple pie 🍎🥧!
Etsy doesn’t hold back on the bundles. Top rated iPhone wallpapers and icon bundles have anywhere from 10,000 to three million designs. You’ll never run out of options. The best part is it works with both iOS and Android phones.
