How to customize StandBy Mode

The clock isn’t the only thing you can change. There are loads of different customization options in StandBy Mode.

If you want to use the two-widget theme, press and hold the clock or calendar and press the ‘-‘ symbol above one of them to remove it.

Then, tap the ‘+’ in the top left to add a new widget in its place. There are loads of different ones to choose from.

You can also create widget stacks that let you access multiple different widgets with up and down swipes rather than just two.

Make sure StandBy Mode is enabled

StandBy Mode should automatically be turned on when you download iOS 17. However, if it’s not, you may need to turn it on in Settings.

Open your iPhone Settings and scroll down to StandBy. Then, make sure the green toggle is in the enabled position.

“StandBy will activate when iPhone is turned on its side to show widgets, photos or clocks,” a message from Apple explains.
