    I can find black and white, color...but not studio effect. Is it only with certain types of photos? I've tried a few...thanks.

    I don't have "suggested photos" listed as options.

    Debra: This may have changed during the final release of iOS 16. Either way, you can still find any photo in your Library.

    That focus really messed up my phone and home screen. Sorted it out eventually by turning focus off. What a nightmare lol.

    Hi Gary, I can't see the green dot on the globe in 'Astronomy' on my phone like I can see on yours.
    Thanks

    Barbara: In Settings, go to Privacy & Security, then Location Services, then check to see if you have allowed "Astronomy" access.

    I don't want my home screen to be the same as my lock screen, but I can't figure out how to do it, or maybe they have to be the same.

    Phyllis: You do that at the end of the process. Around 7:30 here. You click Customize Home Screen at the bottom.
