In iOS 16, widgets have spread beyond the desktop – now they can also be installed on the lock screen. They are small and monotonous, but quite informative and offer some improvements in terms of convenience. For example, the innovation opened up huge opportunities for sophisticated personalization: standard options such as a calendar and battery charge of gadgets can be supplemented with creative third-party developments.
