    when I first started personalizing my iphone 7+, if I pressed on one of my newly installed apps it would show 'add widget'. I ignored because I wasn't ready to do that yet. Now that I am, I cannot get the apps to show the 'add widget'. In fact none of the apps I installed will pop up on the widget scroll. I checked the tips and it said to press and hold and the option would pop up; have tried everything; no help in Youtube - hoping someone here has had this problem and can help.

    Sorry if this appears somewhere, I waded through some, but none of my search questions revealed this particular problem.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Can you not just swipe right on the home screen to show the widget screen and then scroll down to select "Edit" to add and/or remove the available widgets?

    To my experience apps has to support the 3D touch option. Most of my apps doesn't.

    Yes, I can, but my own downloaded apps are not shown on the widget menu so I can't add them.

    Then more than likely the apps do not have an associated widget. Either that or the "downloaded" apps are not authorized to install a widget.

    Scroll down to the "edit" option. Those with the green dots are apps with a widget. If your app is not there, then it doesn't support a widget.

    Some of mine show "add widget", but most don't. But I have almost 300 apps. LOL
