How to Create and Add Widgets on an iPhone
When Apple launched iOS 14, they released widgets as a new, convenient feature. What's lovely about widgets is that they simplify iPhone user's app usage, particularly with their favorite or most-used apps. Apple stated their goal was to provide iPhone users, and iOS users overall, an opportunity to view basic information from their most-used apps "at a glance."
This is extremely helpful when considering apps like the Weather app, the Calendar app, the Clock app, and other productivity applications. Being able to simply bring up your home screen and being able to see the temperature outside, the date and relevant events, and the time is incredibly intuitive and convenient.
This guide will show you how to create and use widgets on your iPhone, or other iOS and iPadOS products, home screen so that you can make your device use even more convenient.
Note: Once thing to consider about widgets is that they can contribute to daily battery life. These steps can be done on iOS and iPadOS products. iOS 14 or later is required since widgets didn't exist until iOS 14. These steps were done with iOS 14.6 and may change or vary slightly depending on your software version.
