iPhone widget settings

iPhone widget settings {Add widget on iPhone} The ability to edit the widget on the iPhone home screen is a new feature that was added to this operating system in iOS 14. Of course, this feature was already available for Android users. Although in iOS 13, using widgets is not as easy and convenient as the new version of this operating system, but they can be used as a useful tool.

What is a widget?

Widgets are applications that are placed as a module of the main program on the screen of your phone or tablet. In fact, users can view information from that application using the widget without opening the application.

iOS widgets come in three sizes, which we call small, medium, and large. They occupy the space of 4 apps, 8 apps (horizontal rectangles) and 16 apps (big squares that take up half of your screen), respectively. These widgets use all the extra space to display useful information.
Probably the easiest thing an iPhone widget can do for you is to display the weather. The small iOS Weather widget displays the current temperature, today’s high and low forecast, and a thumbnail (cloudy, rainy or sunny) on the screen!

Some programs offer different types of widgets. For example, Wikipedia’s “Image of the Day” shows you a glimpse of “Today in History” and a summary of today’s most read articles. However, note that not every widget offers every size. Google only provides small (for quick search) and medium (incognito mode and voice search) widgets for iPhone users.

As you might have guessed, weather, calendar, and financial apps are the leading widgets. Native Apple apps and some iOS settings, such as battery and display, are also very popular among widget enthusiasts. In addition, a dedicated widget called Widgetsmith has gained its fans for full-screen management.
