How To Change Widgets On iPhone 8 And iPhone 8 Plus

Widgets are like apps, their icons are no different and they can stay anywhere on the Home Screen where you want it to be. Your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus is probably already displaying widget and app icons on that main screen. If you’re here, it must be because you want to make a change. And though we have promised you some widget related information right from the title, we trust you won’t mind us extending this comprehensive, to the point tutorial with some extra advice on adding new apps as well, will you?

  1. To change the widgets – you must make it to the Edit Screen, which you can access from the Home Screen, with a long tap on an empty region of your wallpaper. When the Edit Screen opens up, the Widget icon will be waiting for you to tap on it and open up the entire list of widgets. Select one and add it to the Home screen, after which you can repeat these steps to add new widgets. If not, you can stop at the newly added widget, on the Home Screen, and long press its icon to unlock the editing options. From the same place you can even delete it, just in case bringing that widget there was a mistake from the very beginning.
  2. To change the apps – you must make it to the place where you have that app stored and select it. With a long press and a hold for a few seconds, you can consider that app selected and ready to be dragged to the Home Screen. Only release it where you see fit.


Needless to say, such changes of widgets on the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus screen are no complicated thing. In time and with practice, you’ll do it in the blink of an eye!
