According to a tweet by Vaibhav Jain on Twitter, whose username goes by @vvaiibhav, Samsung has reportedly taken inspiration from iOS 16’s lock screen and cloned the same to the lock screen of the Samsung phone. Going by the image, it looks like the device is the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. And, he is comparing the latest One UI 5.0 Beta 3 with the iOS 16 lock screen and they look identical.

Further, he says, just like iOS 16, a long press will open up customization with colour pallet options and filter options. Also, the wallpaper picker for OneUI 5 Beta 3 is similar to the iOS 16. As for the lock screen customization options, Samsung’s skin is offering five clock styles and multiple colour options. In addition, wallpaper selection on OneUI 5 is offering some shape wallpapers, solid colours, and wallpaper services for more collections.

Having said that, many users on Twitter are saying these features were already available on the Good Lock app. Vaibhav Jain responded on Twitter by saying, “but added it to the System after the launch of iOS 16”.
