Samsung made lock screen customization on its phones look similar to that of iOS 16 in its latest One UI 5 beta. Video creator and TechDroider founder Vaibhav Jain pointed out on Twitter that the lock screen interface for One UI 5 is a spitting image of the lock screen interface for iOS 16, but with some differences. Whereas iOS 16 gives users a selection of eight clock face designs, One UI 5 gives only five. The former also offers both built-in and third-party widgets, while the latter only offers widget icons for notifications.

Samsung users can pick from five different clock styles, compared to the eight offered on iOS 16. There are also options to change the clock colour and font style. Similarly, while selecting wallpapers, both systems offer a ‘Collection’ of backgrounds with a similar layout.

Most of the similarities between iOS 16 and One UI 5 lie in wallpapers. Both operating systems have a carousel of different backgrounds that users can switch to when the mood strikes them, and change the colors of the wallpapers that best suit their style. This little boost to Samsung owners’ lock screens continues the pattern of Samsung mocking Apple as soon as it releases a new iPhone or iOS update, only to copy its style later. At least Samsung owners, and Android users by extension, now have the same customization privileges iPhone users enjoy.
