A few days ago, Apple released its next in line firmware for all compatible iOS devices. While iOS 10 brings a lot of new things to mainly every aspect of the operating system, there are some places where it gets a little annoying. The lock screen has been a subject to major redesign including the unlocking procedure. Other than that, Lock screen is also given a widgets screen when swiping left. Even though it’s a neat addition and might add in a little color to the Lock screen, sometimes it’s just not necessary. So here’s how to disable widgets on Lock screen in iOS 10.
