Apps That Have Added iOS 16 Lock Screen Widget Support

Apple in iOS 16 introduced a customizable Lock Screen, complete with widgets. You can have up to five separate widgets on your Lock Screen, including four below the time and one above the time. There are several widgets available from Apple for apps like Weather, Calendar, Clock, Fitness, and Reminders, but third-party app developers are also able to create widgets for the Lock Screen.

We've rounded up a bunch of third-party apps that have implemented widget support as of today, so you can see some of the widget options available to you. Note that if you're planning on getting an iPhone 14 Pro, widgets will be available even when your screen is off thanks to the Always-On display.

Flighty

Flight tracking app Flighty offers several different widget options. You can see a countdown to your trip before you go, and when you're ready to travel, you can see your gate code, seat number, and take off time. When the flight's in the air, you can see an in-flight progress bar, and then when you land, you can view your arrival gate, weather, and baggage carousel information.

I do so hope that my favourite app “LifeRemaining” gets a widget as soon as possible. It’s a real nifty little app that takes all your existing medical conditions, family history of medical conditions, income levels, education level, and all the data from the health app and uses GPS to track where in the social-economic global chain you live, and gives you a very accurate countdown to your most likely time of death.

Now, whenever the madness of happiness first spreads its joyous tendrils out to give me false hope, I can simply lift my phone and be reminded of how pointless and futile it all is. Sure, I could just simply open the app and look at the pretty countdown graphs and most probable cause of death, but that’s extra steps needed, time I could be better spending watching my life meter go down.

To have this on the Lock Screen is a real game changer for me.

I feel a bit sorry for those buying the most expensive new phone for the AOD, as just one line of widgets doesn't seem enough.

Note: If you've updated an app and can't find the widget to add, open the app once.
