Samsung’s third One UI 5.0 beta arrived late last week and users are finding that the lock screen customization options are quite similar to those introduced by Apple in iOS 16 earlier this month (through 9to5Mac). While Samsung has been letting users customize their lock screens for years, either through the Good Lock app or the One UI system, the most recent update seems to draw a lot of inspiration from Apple (although inspiration can flow either way).

Lock screen customization is one of the biggest changes in iOS 16, as Apple introduced widgets, new wallpaper options, and the ability to customize everything from font, colors, background filters, and more. The latest version of the beta gives Samsung users more control over the placement of the clock and introduces a variety of font and color options.

In a message on Twitter, TechDroider founder Vaibhav Jain shows off the similarities between iOS 16, the One UI 5 beta, and Good Lock, the Samsung-specific app that opens up other device customization options not built into the system. As in iOS 16, Samsung’s One UI 5.0 beta 3 also introduces the ability to long-press the lock screen to change it instead of having to dig into the settings.

It’s not new to see phone manufacturers copying each other, but it’s funny to see Samsung so soon after delivering a advertising campaign focused on the brand as it does not have a foldable phone in its range. It even mocked the company’s lack of “innovative” features in a thread on Twitter after the release of the iPhone 14, calling it a 48MP main camera compared to Samsung’s 108MP sensor in the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
