Before iOS 14, widgets were small pop-ups you’d get when you performed a long press on a supported app. One nice thing is they were interactive. For example, you could have a calculator app you could use without opening the app. You can still use these old “widgets” by swiping all the way to the left of the Home screen, but you can’t use them on the Home screen itself. It would be awesome if we could interact with Home screen widgets, rather than having them open the entire app whenever you touch them.
