Pinterest has started rolling out its own widget to the iOS14 home screen for Apple devices. With this implementation, users will now be able to personally customise their home screen with those offered by the platform. The company’s decision to introduce this feature specifically for the Apple devices is due to the recent spike in iOS downloads and searches it received recently.
Through the new Pinterest widget, users will be able to choose a widget from a specific Pinterest board as their photo source, while at the same time have access to use their own board or from one that they follow on Pinterest. That said, among those that could be utilised as an iOS14 widget include specific motivational quotes, travel inspiration and style ideas, among others.
Besides this, the company noted that each of its widgets will be updated on an hourly or daily basis, depending on a user’s personal preference. Additionally, users will also be able to adjust the size of a widget from small to large, but strangely there’s no medium-size option available.
At the time of writing, the Pinterest widgets are already in its global roll-out phase starting today for Apple iOS14 users. It is also worth mentioning that Pinterest’s interactive widgets can simultaneously open the app when tapped on.
