In iPadOS, you can now pin widgets next to your apps on the Home Screen. To do this, swipe in from the left-hand side. You’ll notice your widgets appear, and your app icons ‘squidge’ up to make room for them. However, when you swipe between pages, these then disappear. You can change that. Swipe from the left to bring up your widgets and scroll all the way down to press the Edit button. On the Edit page, you can change which widgets are displayed on that side panel, and at the very top is the option to ‘Keep on Home Screen’. If you turn this toggle on, your widgets will then stay locked into place, even when you swipe between pages; they’ll always be there on that first screen of your Home Screen – ready for you.
