    Now that IOS 14 enables you to "reasonably" personalize our home screens with widgets it would be nice to see how you use this new feature to enhance your workflow and organize your home screen.

    Note that android has been sharing hideous home screens since 2008 so this should be a judgement-free thread :)

    Thankful for the app library feature. I just hide all my home screen pages and put widgets. Found my iPhone use more intentional than before (I use it when I need it, then put it away when I don't).

    Mm...with the App Library, I deleted all but one app folder and cleaned up my Homescreen. Less is more.

    So, it is just the home screen with 2 stacked widgets and the App Libray page.

    I tried doing the shortcuts method but changed it back in less than 10 mins. Opening the apps would route you to shortcuts app first before the main app. Also, too much android looking for my taste. I like to keep my home screen neat. Then widgets remain on the widgets tab.

    mm..the App library makes editing the home screen possible because it replaces the app folder. Clutter-free is what I did. Widgets are still useful specially with stacking. Pushes info to the user without interacting. And I m sticking with Apple widgets because it has all what I need.

    Also decluttered my Home Screen to one-page. Smart Stack (Calendar, Weather, World Clock) and an App Suggestions widget. That's it. Everything else, I access from the App Library.

    mm...Apple spends hundreds of millions through their Human Interface Design division perfecting the font and design of the app symbols. The above example is an example of what not to do.
