Original story (published November 1, 2022) follows:

iOS 16 brought some really cool and unique features to the otherwise mature and stable operating system. The ability to have the ‘depth effect’ in lock screen wallpapers was especially appreciated by Apple users.

As soon as the beta version was released, many started experimenting with the new feature, trying to create beautiful lock screens and share them with others.

While the feature is great on its own, it can be a painstaking task to find wallpapers that enable and take advantage of the ‘depth effect’. It’s not perfect either.
