Brilliant iOS 14 Concept Reveals How Home Screen Widgets Could Look Like on iPhone
The next major versions of iOS and iPadOS are expected to bring groundbreaking new features, including list view and widgets for the home screen, third-party wallpaper collections, and an ability to select default mail and web browser apps. Now, a new concept shows how widgets could look like on iPhones running iOS 14.
A new concept created by Buzzfeed’s Parker Ortolani shows how Apple could free widgets from the dedicated widgets screen and bring them to the home screen on iPhones. The concept shows Apple’s possible SpringKit framework that would allow third-party developers to bring widgets for their apps to the home screen with iOS 14. Users could also place both app icons as well as their widgets on the home screen.
There could be three design options that developers could choose for widgets: still icon (classic), live icon (two icons wide), and full-sized widgets (four icons wide). We already know how classic still icons appear. Coming to the live icon feature, weather apps could show a slightly bigger icon with temperature information and conditions.
The Activity app could make the full use of a full-sized widget, which displays calories burnt, active minutes, the activity ring, and a long press option to change the size of the widget or switch it back to the classic still icon. Other apps like music or podcast players could display audio playback controls such as play/pause, rewind, and skip inside their widgets on the home screen.
Apple already offers pinned widgets on the home screen of iPadOS 13, but those are limited and can’t be moved between icons of other apps as freely as it is possible on Android. The company is still developing real widgets for the home screen, but it is possible that the company might not release it after all if the development doesn’t get finished by the time iOS 14 gets unveiled at WWDC 2020.
