iOS 18 widgets can be resized more easily

Modify widget size in iOS 18

With the first beta of iOS 18 for developers In our hands we can enjoy all the new features that were presented at WWDC24 and even find out all the functions and changes introduced that did not have a place in last Monday's keynote. One of the priority elements of iOS 18 has been increasing the customizability of the home screen compared to other previous versions of iOS. In fact, Apple wanted to introduce in iOS 18 the feature to resize widgets directly from the home screen, a feature that was already available in iPadOS.

Without a doubt, Apple wanted the customization of the control center and the home screen to not be a problem in iOS 18. And although it is true that customization can be grotesque, each user has their own tastes and the fact that they can Converting the same home screen into an infinite number of different options also makes iOS 18 a special version, closer to Android and further from the original essence of iOS.

One of the functions that Apple has ported from iPadOS to iOS 18 has been the option to modify widgets directly from edit mode from the home screen without having to remove the widget and add a larger one. This same thing could already be done, as we have said, in iPadOS and it allows the user to modify a widget in its different sizes directly.

To access this function we just have to enter editing mode by pressing a widget or app for a while until we see dance to the icons. And, in the same way that happens in the control center, they will appear some notches in the lower right corners of the widgets that if we click and expand we can modify the size of the widgets. A good and quick way to change our home screen in iOS 18.
