With the new release of iOS 16, you can now add Plecto widgets to your lock screen. The widget menu is the same as for home screen, where we currently support the following widgets:

  • Number box
  • Speedometer
  • Leaderboard
  • Line & Area charts
  • Column chart
  • Pie chart

Charts are sometimes displayed as text on the lock screen due to how simple the widgets are supposed to be. In that case, they will show the name and most recent value.

  3. Tap in one of the available areas. A menu will appear at the bottom.
  4. Select Plecto from the list.
  5. Choose the widgets you want to see on your lock screen. This will add a widget placeholder.

  7. Once you're finished, tap Done in the top-right corner.
Can't see Plecto on the list?

Apple seems to have some trouble displaying apps in the menu. Make sure you have the latest version of Plecto. If you still can't see the app, try deleting and reinstalling Plecto on your phone. We know it's not ideal, but it will fix the issue.
