How to Add Widgets on iPhone Lock Screen?

Listen to the Podcast:

Editorialge has covered how the new features in Apple’s iOS significantly affect the reconfigurability of the iPhone’s lock screen. Widgets, which can be added to the iPhone’s lock screen, make it possible to see crucial information without unlocking the device. This article is all about how to add widgets on iPhone lock screen.

Up until this point, the iPhone only allowed you to use Widgets on the home screen, but not the lock screen. With this new feature, the iPhone is now just as customizable as Android devices, which previously allowed users to install Widgets directly onto the lock screen.

Currently, the only Widgets compatible with the iPhone lock screen are those made available by Apple’s built-in applications and services. Widgets that can be added to your iPhone’s lock screen are currently only available through Apple’s own apps, but it is possible that this will change in the future.

A widget can cover the lock screen time on an iPhone. Above the clock on your iPhone’s lock screen, you can use a variety of preconfigured Widgets to display information such as the time zone, the alarm you’ve set, the next event on your calendar, the weather, your activity circles, the next reminder, and action you’ve selected.

On the lock screen, you can also put Widgets below the digital clock. Batteries, Calendar, Clock, Fitness, Reminders, Stock Market, and Time are some of the things you can put here. You can add up to four square widgets with symbols below the time, or you can add up to two rectangular widgets with more information, or you can combine two square widgets with one rectangular widget.
