One of my favorite things about iOS 14 on iPhone is that it allows the users to add widgets on any Home Screen page. Apple did a good job of ensuring that the widget user experience is responsive and fits the widgets that are usually cluttered inside the app icons.
However, you cannot appreciate this user experience on iPad since iPadOS 14 doesn’t have the feature of allowing the users to keep the widgets on the individual Home Screen pages. The widgets are actually limited to the Today view similar to how they were on iPadOS 13. Well, don’t worry, because there is a jailbreak tweak that can help you with this which is known as Anywhere Widgets for iPad. Developed by iOS developer PoomSmart, this tweak does as its name suggests which is to let iPad users to have widgets anywhere on the Home Screen on iPadOS 14 similar to how they could do on an iPhone with iOS 14.
These widgets are same as those found on your iPhone but now they can be aligned with the iPad’s spacious display for a good Home Screen user experience.
If you have been following the news in jailbreak community, then you might know that PoomSmart is famous for getting novel features to unsupported devices and thankfully, Anywhere Widgets for iPad is one such tweak that will be quite useful for you.
The best thing about Anywhere Widgets for iPad is that it automatically adjusts the Home Screen icon grid size of your iPad to make up for the dimensional differences that are likely to disrupt the widget fitment of the app icons on the Home Screen. As a result, your widgets won’t look out of place anymore on the Home Screen and will have proper buffer spacing between the widgets and the icons.
If you are interested in trying Anywhere Widgets for iPad, then you can download this tweak from PoomSmart’s personal repository using their package manager for free of cost. This tweak supports jailbroken iPadOS 14 devices regardless of you using unc0ver or checkra1n jailbreak. The open source code of this tweak is available on Github page so you can check it out to learn how this tweak works.
