You may have used the Files Widget or Weather Widget or Podcast Widget, but none of them can stand a chance to win against Siri Suggestions Widget. In the WWDC20, Siri Suggestion Widget was one of the greatest announcements Apple has made during the entire event, it uses your iPhone, and iPod Touch usage patterns track down your interest and dynamically suggest the app that you are likely to use next. Apple first introduced the concept of Widgets back in iOS 10, but they weren’t as cool and informative as in iOS 14.
In Siri Suggestions Widget, you’re allowed to add Shortcuts or Suggested Apps and stay together with other applications. Any unknown person couldn’t identify that it’s a widget or an app. It can store a total of eight apps, equivalent to two rows, and all these applications will appear based on your usage and interest. Plus, I’ve also seen that I use the Instagram between 7 PM to 8 PM, the Siri Suggestions Widget, automatically adds the Instagram on the top, this is how it works.
