iOS has always had a very clean lock screen. You can show notifications on it and access the camera but nothing more. As of iOS 10, widgets can be added to your lock screen which means it’s going to get a lot busier. Your daily appointments, the day’s weather, and a traffic report can all be set to show on your lock screen. If you’re looking to add a note to it, perhaps the grocery list or an address that you need to get to, Today Snippet is a free iOS widget app that does just that. The app works as an extension allowing you to add text from just about any app. Couple it with the Notes app and you can add anything you’ve saved as a note to your lock screen.
Go to your lock screen, or swipe right to go to the widgets page on your home screen. Tap ‘Edit’ and add the ‘Today Snippet’ widget. With the ‘Today Snippet’ added to your list of widgets, you will see the note you shared to it appear on your lock screen. To delete or change the text the widget shows, you can simply share new text to it. If you want to delete text, open the Today Snippet app, go to the Settings tab, and tap ‘Delete Today Snippet Text’.
If you don’t have iOS 10, you can still use Today Snippet to put a note in the Notifications Center. You must be running iOS 8 to use Today Snippet because the only way to add text to it is via its extension.
