Not much is known about the upcoming One UI 6.0 update from Samsung beyond the fact that it should go live later this year. But we can be sure that One UI 6.0 will further refine the user experience through UI changes, big and small. One such change, in particular, might consist of better lock screen widgets.
According to Twitter user @hyacokr_itnyang, a couple of big changes will be coming to the lock screen through Samsung's One UI 6.0 update. One is the AOD (Always-On Display), which might take inspiration from Apple's latest iOS version on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
This theory isn't new. Another rumor previously suggested that One UI 6.0 will borrow some ideas from Apple for its AOD and might let users set full-screen photos for their Always-on Displays.
Home screen widgets coming to the lock screen in One UI 6.0?
The second big change that might be coming to the lock screen in One UI consists of better widgets. More specifically, One UI 6.0 might allow you to use the same widgets from the home screen to the lock screen. The fan-made render below (not a leak) offers an example of what this might look like.
Lock screen widgets already exist in One UI. However, these widgets are not the same widgets you use for the home screen. Lock screen widgets are specific to the lock screen and are limited in information and customization options.
Though the One UI 6.0 update, however, Samsung will presumably allow users to set regular home screen widgets to the lock screen. This should go well hand-in-hand with the improved Always-On Display feature.
