Changing an icon into a widget

Some app icons can be changed into a convenient widget to use on your Home screen.

  1. Touch, hold, and release a Home screen icon.

    • A blue frame appears around the icon if it can be resized and changed into a widget (if it can't, only the Edit icon is displayed).

  2. Drag the corners of the frame to make it larger and change it into a widget.

    • Touch, hold, and release the widget again to change the size of the widget, if necessary.

    • You can also change it back into a normal icon by dragging the corners of the resizing frame back in.
