iOS 16: here are the best applications that support Widgets in Lockscreen

iOS 16 has arrived and in these first hours users are messing around a lot, especially with the new Lock Screen.

One of the many new features is the ability to add some widgets, both above and below the clock and in this article we want to review the main applications that have already been updated to offer such widgets.

Widgets in Lockscreen are very convenient and they will be even more so with the iPhone 14 Pro because they will be visible even when the screen is off and will allow you to have different information at a glance, without even having to light up the screen. Then download the applications that are right for you.

The list is continually updated, more apps will be added over time. If you want to report some that you find very useful, you can do it in the comments.

We couldn’t help but start from our application. iSpace allows you to view a widget with the title of the latest news published on the blog on the lock screen. With a tap you will open the app to read the entire article. This way you will always be up to date on the latest Apple news. PS. The update is available that fixes a problem with our widget that previously could not appear in the list on some iPhones. Run to download it!

Another application that I love is LockFlow which adds another function that Apple has not thought of, that is to equip the application with Widget Quick Commands in Lockscreen. Well LockFlow does just that and will allow us to execute quick commands directly from the unlock screen.

Great nice application that allows you to track packages and deliveries (also integrates with Amazon). Now in lockscreen we will be able to view the status of shipments with widgets.

Application in which you can write down all the to-dos, similar to Reminders but with many functions. The Widgets in the lockscreen show the tasks that we have yet to complete or a circle with a progress bar that indicates how many things we have done compared to those we have to do in the day.
