The Notification Center in Apple iOS 10 got a big upgrade in the form of Widgets. These helpful tools are reminiscent of my favorite macOS tool, the Dashboard. With Widgets, you can get a myriad of information in your Notification Center: weather, news, sports scores, traffic, stocks, and more. Basically anything on your iOS device that can send you an active notification can turn that data into a passive widget.

If you’re a fan of data, you’ve probably already swiped left to see what widgets are available in the Notification Center. Apple adds a few right off the bat. But what if you want to add more? It’s a fairly painless process.

The widget you added is automatically appended to the bottom of your active list. To move it, tap and hold the Move icon on the right-hand side and drag and drop the widget to where you want it to be in the list.
