If you’ve ever had an Android phone, you might have used widgets before now, but you might not have known it. Is there much you can get to by swiping from home or locking screens on iOS? Only a small version of “Today View,” which is on both the iPhone and iPad. Widgets of different sizes are welcome in a wide range of apps, and they can be used anywhere. You can change it, move it, and put it on top of what’s in your heart. iOS 14 gives you a lot of ways to make it your own.
Widgets don’t matter how you put them on your iPhone or iPad, and Then, you can make your iPhone a little more useful and tailor it to your own needs. The home screen of your iPhone or iPad needs to be changed. All of this is possible with the new iOS 14 update that lets you make your own iOS 14.
You might have to work for hours to make the perfect home screen. Here is a guide to help you figure out if widgets are right for you and how to start.
Update Software IOS 14 – IPhone/ IPad
You first need to make sure your phone has iOS 14 on it. Then you can use your inner designer to make iOS 14 look different. To get the new software, you need an iPhone 6S or above. If you have an iPhone 6 or below, you can’t change your home screen for now.
This process will take about 45 minutes to install the new IOS 14 software on your phone. It’s the most time-consuming part of making your own IOS 14.
Pick a Widget app, and we choose” Widgetsmith.”
With iOS 14, the big news is that widgets can now be used on your phone or tablet. Android has had this for a long time, but now iPhone and iPad users can use it, too.
Even though the update can work with widgets, not everyone has native widgets. However, you can get an app that helps you make widgets. Everything from Widget smith to Glimpse 2 can be found. To show you how this works, we will use Widget Smith’s name. This will only take a minute.
Figure out your Theme/Photo
The rest of the space is up to you, but some controls are there to help you. Any images you want can be downloaded. When you’re done setting things up, click Wallpaper and choose from a picture in your photo album. Make sure that your Wallpaper goes well together. This processing time will depend on what you desire or pick out. It will be different for each person.
Create some Widgets
Many apps for the iPhone and iPad already have iOS widgets that work with them. Then, long-press the screen until all of the apps moves around. You can pin that to your screen. Then, press the Plus sign on the top right corner of the screen to add your favourite widgets. This will show a list of gadgets that can be chosen, including apps that are owned by Apple and apps that have been installed by other people.
If you haven’t already, go to Widgetsmith and start to make widgets. Each of the styles comes in different sizes and layouts. When you open the app, you’ll be able to choose any kind. Click Widget Default to make it the default. Then select the one you want. Photo in Style is at the top of the list. Then click Photo Selected to choose the picture you want. Afterwards, make sure to click Save. Repeat this process with as many widgets as you want, and then fill in the home screen with them.
This will take about 10 minutes to do and it will be done.
You’ve put up your most important photos, so why not make your apps look nice and easy to use? We’ll start with this step. Use the Shortcuts app on your phone to change the icons for apps. This isn’t new. To make your App icons, you must get the photos you want to use. Make all the apps blue or any colour you want. In Shortcuts, click “+” on the upper right. Then click “OK.” Add Action and type “App Open” into the search box. At the bottom of this page, a button says “Open App.” Select, then choose the app.
Arrange the un-common Apps
When you finish a page and think about how many applications you have to put together, you’ll remember. When you make your own version of iOS 14, you can also choose how to manage your apps. Press and hold the dots at the bottom when you’re on the home screen. They will show how many pages you have. Remember when you installed many apps and had to hide them in folders to keep them from taking up space on your home screen? If you want to get rid of apps that you don’t use every day, it’s now easy to do so. You can also put them in the background.
Tap any of the unesthetic pages left, and they’ll get bundled into your App Library at the end of your home screen scroll. But the hidden apps can still be found in the App Library. You can tick screens that you want to see and untick those you wish to hide. Not only can you re-enable them whenever you want, but the hidden apps can still be found in the App Library.
This process will take 3 minutes almost.
It is over! It is now time to think about whether it was worth it. In reality, the design of one page takes about an hour and a half. If you really stick to the theme, it can take hours because this process can be very repetitive to create shortcuts for each app.
It also has a slight downside. Since you use the Shortcuts App, it takes you to the Shortcuts screen for a split second before taking you to your preferred application every time you open one of your nice new icons. You still don’t get screen bubbles on these applications indicating how many unread texts, snaps, etc., you have. That doesn’t affect the app’s accessibility, but if you find it bothers you, then you do not have a customised home screen.
