Last Update date : Oct 01. 2020

Widgets

To save yourself some time, add your favorite widgets to the Home screen of your phone. Is there actually a difference between apps and widgets? The short answer, yes. In a nutshell, apps are programs you have to open by touching an icon. Widgets are programs that are always active on your Home screen. Some of the most common widgets used are weather updates, event calendars, and Google Search.

Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
