How to use the widgets
The Today View displays a list of widgets. Each widget represents an app that displays some information that you’d want easy access to. Some widgets let you do a few more things like the “Show More” feature.
Show More: The Show More feature is located on the upper right hand corner of the widget. When you tap this, the widget will expand and display more information. For example in the Weather widget, it will display the current weather in your designated location. When you tap Show More, the Weather widget will expand and show the hourly forecast for the day.
