Access the Widgets
One of the biggest changes to iOS 10 was the removal of the Slide to Unlock feature. Many users are still getting used to changing this behavior yet when we swipe right from our Lock Screen, we are now greeted with the Widgets screen.
Widgets are small applications that are often running background tasks for us and providing information. Some of the native widgets provided are Up Next (for upcoming calendar appointments), Phone Favorites, Music, Maps and more.
Scrolling through these widgets will provide up to date information from those apps and can be very useful for getting a quick look at your day and appointments you have scheduled. This is also where third-party widgets will appear once they are enabled.
