iOS15/iPadOS 15: how to add widgets to your Home Screen

With iOS 14/iPadOS 15 and later, you can use widgets on your Home Screen to keep your favorite information at your fingertips. For instance, you can add widgets to your home screen.

Here’s how:

  1. From the Home Screen, touch and hold a widget or an empty area until the apps jiggle.
  2. Tap the Add button (“+”) in the upper-left corner.
  3. Select a widget, choose from three widget sizes, then tap Add Widget.
  4. Tap Done.

To add widgets from Today View:

  1. Touch and hold a widget until the quick actions menu opens.
  2. Tap Edit Home Screen.
  3. Drag the widget to the right edge of the screen until it appears on the Home Screen.
  4. Tap Done.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple’s support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)
