iOS 14 brings Widgets and the App Library so I decided to do my first major reorganization since folders were introduced.
Here was the state of my phone right after updating to iOS 14 but before making any changes:
In the process of moving most apps into the App Library I removed a few that were no longer supported (generally older games) as well as apps for services I no longer use.
For widgets I’ve started with just weather and calendar which I’m likely to want at a glance; I’ve also reduced the number of apps on the first page. Still waiting for some of the third party widget apps that I’m likely to use heavily.
Possibly the biggest change is giving up on the default Dock; I barely use Phone directly and I don’t use Apple Mail much so those are both dropped in favor of Slack (social and work) and Twitterrific (I tweet too much).
Here’s how things are set up now, though I expect to refine it over the next few weeks as I see how I use things and as widget updates come through.
The astute among you may notice an extra page in each setup without a screenshot; that contains <redacted>.
I also dropped some apps I used to use heavily, or thought I would use heavily, and let them get buried in the App Library. I figure I’ll interact with those primarily through notifications, deep links, or search.
Maybe it’s a sign I need to get off Twitter and back to RSS?
