Following the launch of iOS 10 , the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system, the Widgets received a major update on both design and functional level.
As with Rich Notifications , iOS 10 widgets offer much more information, more detail, and more interactive multimedia content to iPhone and iPad users.
In this article we will tell you everything you can do with iOS 10 Widgets to take full advantage of all its features through the App Store applications.
Widgets for iOS apps are becoming more complete
Although not yet possible, in the not too distant future and thanks to iOS Widgets users will have the possibility to perform all our daily tasks from a single panel.
Currently, iOS 10 Widgets can already do all kinds of things: from booking a table in our favorite restaurant to ordering a taxi, to other types of everyday actions such as take a look at the weather information, see the sports results , And even annotations in Notes.
But, as we mentioned earlier, Widgets for iOS apps still have much room for improvement. Do you think they had integration with Siri? This way you could ask the voice assistant to display all of the specific Widget information.
On the other hand, in the future Widgets will be much more interactive. For example, users could open the Photo Widget to organize our photos, and even delete those videos that we want.
But let us forget, for a moment, all that the Widgets need for the future and focus on everything they are capable of doing. And is that with the applications of the App Store we have the ability to use the 3D Touch functions to explore options and even play videos of some applications like ESPN. They are great!
In addition, in iOS 10 we have a new panel (in the Block Screen and Home Screen) specially designed for Widgets. So a couple of taps are enough on the screen of the iPhone and the iPad to access them.
