Leading up to iOS 14’s debut—and certainly since its release last week—we’ve seen Dribbblers post a litany of Shots showcasing the new bells and whistles of Apple’s update.

One of the key features that has caught the eye of both users and enterprising designers are the operating system’s customizable widgets.

In fact, we’ve collected some of our favorite designs that riff on iOS 14’s new widget capabilities—so get inspired to customize your own home screen and even dream up widget iterations for your own favorite apps. Happy designing, Dribbblers!
