How to create or add a widget to a Smart Stack in iOS 14

It’s been a few months since iOS 14 was made available to the public and it’s one of the biggest iOS updates to date because it brings in a lot of new features. Homescreen Widgets was one of the newly introduced features that came with iOS 14 and with the help of this, users can add widgets directly to their home screen and get access to some quick actions. Since Homescreen also has your apps adding a lot of widgets isn’t possible and hence to solve that problem iOS 14 comes with Smart Stacks that allows you to add two or more widgets together.

These widgets automatically keep changing with time and users can customize them as per their needs. Apple also offers a prebuilt Smart Stack however it has some widgets but it may have widgets that are of no use to you. The Widgets on iOS 14 are available in three sizes so if you want to create a smart stack all widgets should have the same size. In this guide, we are going to show you How to create or add a widget to a Smart Stack in iOS 14. Without waiting further, let’s get started.
