Smart Stacks are groups of Widgets that can be easily flipped through right on your home screen. By using a Stack, you can keep multiple Widgets in one Widget location without taking up extra space in your home screen.
iOS 14 is one of Apple’s biggest iOS updates to date, introducing Home screen design changes, major new features, updates for existing apps, Siri improvements, and many other tweaks that streamline the iOS interface.
What is a Smart Stack?
A Smart Stack is a Stack of Widgets that uses Siri intelligence to predict which Widget you’ll need when using your iPhone or iPad. So for example, when you flip open your iPhone home screen to check the weather and the weather Widget is already there.
Simply add any Widget to your home screen by holding down on any app icon and tapping the “+” button in the very top left corner of the display. From there, you can select any Widget available on your iPhone or iPad and the Widget will jump into your home screen. Once added, each Widget can be dragged and dropped on top of another Widget to create a Stack.
To create a Stack, hold down on any Stack on the Home Screen, tap Edit Stack, and then toggle the Smart Rotate option at the top of the window. When toggled on, Smart Rotate will use Siri machine learning to show you a Widget within that Stack that it thinks you’ll want or need.
