Follow our step-by-step guide to create custom widgets on the iPhone using Widgetsmith.
Step 1: Open the App Store and download the Widgetsmith app.
Step 2: Open the app and give the necessary permissions.
Step 3: Select the Widget size to customize.
Step 4: The Style menu allows you to add information such as Date, Time, Photo, Calendar, Weather, Health Activity, Tides, and even Astronomy.
Step 5: If the selected Style involves fonts, go to the font menu and select the preferred font style.
Step 6: Add Tint color, Background Color, and Border color, and you are good to go.
The customization option varies based on the Widget style you choose. For example, if you opt for a photo widget, the following options will ask you to choose a photo, alignment, and other image-related options.
You can schedule this set of widgets to appear dynamically on your home screen and follow the rules you define. For example, a particular widget could show the weather first thing in the morning, then your calendar during your workday, then switch to your Activity ring progress as you wrap up your day. Simply select ‘Add a Timed Widget’ and define a time slot for a widget to appear at a set time.
I will recommend creating a bunch of widgets using Calendar, Reminders, Photos, and Apple Health integration on Widgetsmith and stack them in a single widget. First, add all the widgets to the home screen and use drag and drop to stack widgets on each other.
