Why is the time on my lock screen so dim?

I updated to iOS 16, and for the first 2 days, my Lock Screen time was bright. Now it’s really dim and hard to see. Can anyone help?

Arthur… It sounds like there might be a settings issue causing the dimming of your Lock Screen time. You could try adjusting the brightness settings in the Display & Brightness section of your iPhone settings.

If that doesn’t work, restarting your device or resetting the settings might help. If the issue persists, contacting Apple Support or visiting an Apple Store for assistance would be a good idea.

Lock screen time dim on iOS 16? Annoying update might have turned off “Bold Text” in Settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size. Turn it on for a brighter clock!

Certain Focus settings can affect the appearance of your Lock Screen, and dim the clock. This mainly affects the Sleep Focus: Open the Settings app, and tap Focus. Tap Sleep.
