How do you disable widgets? i used to be able to see everything in one glace with a swipe right. now i have big ass widgets which take up more room on my screen but i now have scroll down to see the same info as i did in one glace in iOS 13..
Yeah I really HATE how big the task buttons have become in the Shortcuts widget. Now most of my shortcuts don't fit in the widget, and the widget isn't scrollable.

Thanks for your input. Would you mind posting here again if you find any more bugs mentioned anywhere? :)
Well, this is a definite bug.

With this, and others odd behaviors...I expect a patch fix soon. Maybe???
Whatever the case, I've decided to hold off updating until the new patch at the earliest.

I don't think that is true. I remember the inability of adding widgets to home screen was one of the things that was different than iOS. And 9to5Mac also says:

iPadOS 14 arrives with the new widgets that have landed with iOS 14 (however they are limited to the Today View )

It is true. Like I said, when I set my iPad up as a new device I was able to add widgets to my home screen. I then reset the iPad and restored using an iCloud backup. Now the widgets features doesn’t work. It’s a bug Apple would need to address if its a widespread problem.

So, after updating all of my devices, I am getting the following popup message on all of my devices about a site I have never been to before. Anyone else getting this?

I found this address used for one of my subscribed iCloud calendars. It was a calendar for movies releases, not really relevant at this point. I unsubscribed.

The App Library still feels like a complete nightmare...wish they gave you the choice how you want the apps to appear.
If that's what you want you might as well just stick to Folders. No offence, I have both, folders for like things I want to keep together like Bank apps, Photography, Cycling related apps and media etc. I have one standard Home page, one page of Folders and the rest I leave to the Library. I particularly like the way it keeps most used apps in each classification on top. I used to have 7 pages of apps before.
