To create your first custom widget, first select which widget size you want to use. Small widgets take up the space of 4 app icons, medium widgets are the size of 8 app icons, and large widgets are the size of 16 app icons. Tap the Add Widget button for the size you want. When your new widget appears, tap it to customize. Tap Default Widget. Now you can choose the kind of widget you’re looking for. The free options include Time, Day & Date, Custom Photo and Text, Battery, Calendar, Reminders, Health & Activity, and Astronomy. If you pay for a Widgetsmith Premium membership, you can also create custom widgets for Weather and Tides. Tap the widget style you want to use. Then tap Font. Here you can choose a text style for your widget. Tap the one you want to use. Next, tap Tint Colour. This allows you to choose a text colour. If you select Custom, you can drag the colour selection tool with your finger to pick any text colour you want. Now tap Background Colour. Choose a background colour you like, or tap Custom to pick your own. Lastly, tap Border Colour. Pick a border colour for your widget, or leave None selected if you don’t want a border. When you’re done customizing your widget, tap the arrow in the top left corner to go back. At the top, select Tap to Rename. Type in what you want to call this widget. Finally, tap Save in the top right corner. Repeat these steps to create as many custom widgets as you like.

To add your new custom widgets to your home screen, go back to your home screen and hold down one of your existing app icons. Then tap Edit Home Screen. Tap the plus sign in the top left corner to add a new widget. In the menu that appears, tap Widgetsmith. Now, select the size of the customized widget you want to add to your home screen, then tap Add Widget at the bottom. Now, tap your new widget to select which of your Widgetsmith designs of that size you’d like to show here. Continue adding the rest of your custom widgets following these same steps. Arrange your widgets by dragging them into place, the same way you can with regular app icons. If you drag two widgets of the same size on top of one another, you can create your own widget smart stack. This way, you can have multiple widgets using the space of one. You can easily swipe upwards on the stacked widgets to view each one in the stack. When you’re finished adding and arranging your widgets, tap Done to save.

Now let’s get into the steps to adding custom icons for your favourite apps. To do this, you’ll need the Shortcuts app. This app was created by Apple and should be pre-installed on your iPhone, but if you’ve previously removed it you can easily re-download it from the App Store for free.

You’ll also need to have the images or icons you want to use for each of your apps saved to your device. You can use any image you already have on your camera roll, design your own icons with your favourite editing app, or download your app icons from a database like icons8.com or flaticon.com.

Once you’ve created or saved the icon images you want to use, open the Shortcuts app and tap the plus sign in the top right corner to create a new shortcut. Now tap Add Action. In the search bar at the top, type Open App. Now tap Choose. Select which app you want this Shortcut to open. Now tap Next. Tap Add to Home Screen. Add a name for your Shortcut. This is the name that will be displayed below the app icon. Beside the name you just typed, tap the default shortcut icon. Then select Choose Photo to import an icon you’ve saved to your camera roll. Tap the photo you want to use as the icon for this app. Adjust the crop of the icon by zooming in, then tap Choose at the bottom. Tap Add in the top right corner. Finally, tap Done. Repeat these steps to create shortcuts for each app you want a custom icon for. You can then rearrange your apps and move any of the original app icons from your home screen into your App Library to keep your home screen organized.
