- The update addresses issues with widgets resetting after restoring from a backup.
Apple has released an update to iOS 15 that addresses a problem with widgets on the iPhone 13, iPad 9th-generation and iPad mini 6.
According to Apple, an issue after restoring from a backup could result in your widgets resetting to their default settings. If you’re not familiar, Apple and third-party developers provide options to customise some widgets, such as setting the location for the Weather widget, or displaying selected notes for the Notes widget. If you have experienced this issue, Apple says that you can take the following steps to customise widgets to your liking.
Tap and hold on a widget to open a menu with quick actions. Tap Edit. Change the settings, and tap anywhere on the screen to save and dismiss.
You should also update to the new build of iOS 15 if you have an iPhone 13, iPad mini 6 or iPad 9th-generation. This build is not available for users on older devices, and is not a new version of iOS 15, like iOS 15.0.1 or iOS 15.1.
