How to Add, Remove, and Rearrange Widgets on iPhone or iPad

Though the process to add, remove, or rearrange widgets on iPhone or iPad hasn't changed much, not many folks would find them quite straightforward. Here how you can manage widgets perfectly.

Along with Messages, my vote for the best features in iOS 10 goes to the revamped Lock screen. With the interactive notifications, Raise to Wake, ultra-elegant widgets and more, Lock screen is designed to steal the show, isn’t it?
