The biggest addition to iOS 10 are all the changes to the Lock screen and Notifications. The slide to unlock gesture is gone. You click the home button to unlock instead. Plus, there’s a whole new screen to the left – the Today view that contains all the widgets. You can access it simply by swiping left on the lock screen.

But this also means that you can accidentally bring up the widgets if you miss-swipe. If for some reason you want to remove the Today screen from the lock screen, and the widgets, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Go to Touch ID and Passcode
