For the first time ever, Apple is allowing users to customize on-screen elements such as the date and time. In addition, it is finally possible to add widgets.

There’s really no surprise here. The majority of apps will be entitled to several widgets, allowing access to features with a tap. For example, Chrome widgets will include shortcuts to the browser’s private browsing and voice search functionality. There’s even a dedicated widget for Chrome’s dinosaur game in case you find yourself offline and need to pass the time.
