Find and add Apple widgets
Widgets are useful tools that you can add to your home screen. They are available in different sizes and show different details. Widgets can display important information from Calendar, Mail, Notes, and more.
Use third party widgets
There are widgets not only in Apple apps, but also in third-party apps. Widgets are available in Spark Mail, Pedometer ++, Unwind, and many more.
Not all applications in the App Store have widgets yet, but over time there will be more and more of them. Be sure to check if widgets appear in your favorite apps.
We have an article with apps that already support home screen widgets.
Create your widgets
If Apple widgets and third-party widgets are not enough for you, then you can create your own!
We talked about applications in which you can create your own widgets. With their help, you can create the perfect widgets for yourself. You can add a widget with a date, time, weather. There are widgets with photos, quotes, etc. You can completely customize their appearance.
You can create a widget with a background of your favorite color, choose a font you like and add it to your home screen.
Change app icons
After adding widgets, you can replace application icons with your own. This is done using the Teams app. Thanks to this, you can create a single theme for your home screen.
The ability to change application icons to your own was even before iOS 14, but now interest in the function has grown greatly. This is due to the fact that now you can completely design the home screen for yourself.
We have a whole tutorial on how to change application icons to your own.
