iOS 16.2 Beta Brings New Sleep Widget to Lock Screen

The first iOS 16.2 beta, released earlier this week, brings a new Sleep widget for the iOS 16 Lock Screen. The Sleep widget uses data stored in the Health app, which is collected by the Apple Watch or other sleep-tracking devices.

A one-tile widget provides information such as the amount of time that a user spends in bed, and two multi-tile options display either a bar chart that shows sleep quality or a larger widget that shows time in bed along with a visual representation. When a user taps on the widget, it opens up the Sleep section of the Health app.

iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max users will see that the Sleep widget will be collapsed when the display is dimmed in always-on display mode, with a series of lines available for the two-tile widget and a bed icon available for the single-tile widget.

While the initial iOS 16.2 beta is currently available only to developers. The update traditionally expands to public beta testers after a short developer-only period.
