Android and iOS are two major operating systems for mobile devices, developed by Google and Apple, respectively. While the former is open source, the latter is just the opposite and no one can take or modify it as Apple keeps privacy in priority.
The latest version of Android (and iOS too), is currently under the Beta testing phase, however, the creators already showcased everything about their arrival. Earlier, Apple held the WWDC event where it had launched the iOS 16 version, which has a lot of new features and changes for iPhones.
Among the most significant changes, the company showcased the all-new lockscreen, which is now heavily customizable by using widgets and Google Material You-like theming system. It impressively applies the wallpaper on the screen as the widgets are quite futuristic when it comes to usability.
Undoubtedly, Samsung stays never behind Apple, but this time, the former needs to learn with the iOS 16 lockscreen features and widgets. In the latest iOS version, the lockscreen wallpaper applied by the user impressively optimizes with the image’s object and background.
The digital clock on the iOS 16 lockscreen makes it sure not to disturb any area of the object in the image. It easily applies behind the object area, but above the background, which gives us a quite perfect yet futuristic feel on the first door of our smartphone.
Well, the above-described lockscreen features are limited to iOS 16 consumers, but we can see what it would look like in the Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Do note that, the image used for lockscreen wallpaper is the exclusive property of SammyFans.com, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra device image is taken from the official Samsung site.

Samsung Galaxy S25 series’ Exynos processor may have nine CPU cores, four Cortex-X cores
Samsung Galaxy S23 is coming in early 2023 but some clever tipsters are already talking about the hardware of 2025’s Galaxy S25 series. A new information reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S25 Exynos chipset will feature nine CPU cores, four Cortex-X cores, and more advanced technologies.
Multiple reports, including Qualcomm, have informed that Samsung will exclusively use Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in the upcoming Galaxy S23 series as the company is ditching Exynos due to its poor performance.
But the company is planning to make a comeback in 2025 with a new mobile processor from the ground up specifically for Galaxy devices. A fresh information claims that Samsung reportedly assembled a “Dream Team” for the effort.
The tipster says that the Samsung Galaxy S25 series’ Exynos chipset will use a tri-cluster, nine-core CPU in a 4-4-1 configuration with four Cortex-X cores, four Cortex-A7xx cores, and one Cortex-A5xx core.
It is likely that the singular Cortex-A5xx core will handle background tasks, such as powering the AoD. An entire Cortex-X core could reserve for One UI and GoS, whereas, the rest will be used for day-to-day tasks, gaming, and other functions.
Meanwhile, for GPU, we expect that the company will bring an RDNA 3 GPU with 8 CUs to make it faster than the iGPU on Ryzen 7000 processors. Aside from these, the future chipset also opts for a 2-6-1 design with two Cortex-X and six Cortex-A7xx cores.
