Install iOS 16.5 for Lock Screen Enhancements
Some of the biggest changes on board Apple's new operating system are the improvements to the iPhone's lock screen.
iOS 16 gives you a ton of control over the Lock Screen allowing you personalize and customize it in a number of different ways.
Some of these options include the ability to add Widgets, new custom fonts for the date and time, better ways to show off your favorite photo, improvements to Notifications, Live Activities (available on iOS 16.1 and later) which will show you things like scores and deliveries in real time, as well as an option to create multiple Lock Screens. You can simply switch between your favorite lock screens with a swipe.
iOS 16.2 brought some useful improvements to iOS 16's lock screen. For instance, if you own an iPhone 14 model, there are new settings that allow you to hide wallpaper or notifications when Always-On display is enabled.
There are also a couple of new widgets including a Sleep widget that lets you quickly view your most recent sleep data and a Medications widget that lets you view reminders and quickly get to your schedule.
If you missed iOS 16.4.1, iOS 16.4, iOS 16.3.1, iOS 16.3 and iOS 16.2, and these upgrades sound useful, download iOS 16.5.

16.1 version is messing with my (encrypt. me) VPN app and my banking app. I have to turn the VPN app off to use my banking app.

Since updating to 16.3.1, my phone keeps freezing/crashing and restarting. Why is this happening??

Too many sites have new emojis as a main reason to upgrade (why?). I was going to blow 16.4 off since emojis are not important until I found much more important reasons that many sites ignore but were covered here.
