Flipboard Finally Gets an iPhone Widget in iOS 14
Back in the fall of the last year, Apple rolled out iOS 14 with several important improvements, including a highly anticipated feature: support for widgets on the home screen.
While they’re not dynamic and can’t include interactive controls, the widgets are a great way to customize the iPhone home screen. So developers have been working around the clock lately to update their apps with a dedicated widget that can be added to the home screen.
Flipboard is the latest big name to get a widget, with the latest release finally bringing this feature to users out there.
Just as expected, the widget displays the headlines from user-defined categories, with four different sizes currently available to users.

Despite Flipboard calling this widget a “dynamic edition,” it’s still as static as it gets, with the content only automatically refreshed when the widget reloads.
