    Re Weather Widget Fuji

    I've put it to my home screen and am quite impressed. It's display variety & customizations are superb. I'm guessing it's weather source is Dark Sky as I checked it against several of my weather apps where source is selectable from several and it is a dead ringer ( both text & actual graphic) for the Dark Sky selection in Hello Weather, Today Weather and others where selectable. Tapping the WWFuji app opens pages of excellent and so far accurate predictions. Dark Sky 'seems' to be more fine tuned in my area since it's Apple takeover - but has historically been shakey here as well as in Canada - a query to them a year or more ago via their browser entry website revealed one reason being that they don't fully support locations where they can't arrange access to Govt weather sources directly, thus they remain unavailable in Canadian & our Barbados App stores. But using the web page they have become quite a bit better with updates to changing weather conditions likely mainly crowdsourced locally. So I will continue to assess their predictions via Weather Widget Fuji while comparing to the other weather apps 'in my stable' and whatever other weather reports I can glean elsewhere.
    Their 'Air Quality' small Widget is also handy on the Today Screen. Best I can tell is it ( for here in Barbados) it uses a source on Martinique but since levels of 'Sahara Dust' is what I watch that is of little consequence so far.
    We should all have your weather problems, what is it, a constant 85° and Sunny in Barbados..LOL

    I would venture 25-33 (77-92) would cover it all year day & night. Concern is normally much more about drought than excess rains, as climate change has certainly brought out the worst of both. Hurricanes notwithstanding ( we were very thankfully spared in 2020) we probably avoided 'island- wide' dry taps last summer only because the hotels and guest apartments, and many businesses were shut down due Covid protocols thus water demand was relatively low. Our house has storage for 800 gal of Govt water and 5000 gal of rainwater but when the rains stop it's always a major concern. The water authority does desalinate but in large quantity it's very $$. Personally I pray a thank you several times a day, when I open a tap, take a shower, or flush a toilet.

    I've always been a bit OCD about weather and time detail, maybe somewhat originating with when I worked. But in that sense, I believed in watching for tree trunks, not leaves, as a discription of the veins on a leaf did little to soothe wounds received from walking headlong into a tree.
    Think about this as you continue with my puzzle on the Lockscreen thread.

    I'm battery paranoia, luckily i can add widget, otherwise I have to always dragdown the menu just to see the battery percentage

    There're 2 more space for the battery status on the widget, what's that for ? apart from airpod ? can i linked my other iphone to it ? :P

    I’ve found if I pair my PS4 controller, the battery status will also be displayed.

    That sounds like it would be kinda KOOL. Does it show the little controller in the circle?

    It will also show other Bluetooth devices, as long as they report their battery status properly

    The Stocks widget in iOS 14 is broken, it displays only first 6 stocks, is there a solution to see all the stocks updates in a widget these days?

    I'm not sure if its broken or designed this way. I would think a visit to the Apple App Store might be in order for possibly a more detailed Stock app.

    Maybe, just maybe 'good news' re my clock debacle where most of the analogue clock widgets I've downloaded, some $, some free, have tended to either stutter or stop altogether. Since yesterday evening let’s see your widgets-img_3366.jpg
    I've had reasonable 'luck' in this with a Widgetopia small clock, which I'd used before with problems ( the same ones) but now in a new display version only recently available. As the original version I tried 2 versions - the new one not yet showing earlier. That version yesterday afternoon still quit on me after about an hour. The new ( different colour) seem much better as it 'keeps on ticking' since yesterday evening . The WWFUJI clocks seem reliable too but I find them unattractive. No point here in naming those which keep stopping as its the lions share of my clock widget downloads have done.

    Approx two iOS updates ago this stopped happening on my iPhone 11 Pro Max and hasn't happened on my 12 Pro Max at all. I'm thinking it might have something to do with the age of your device and it's ability to handle widgets. Maybe or maybe not, however I could tell the difference in overall performance when I went from my 11 to my 12. iOS14 is a more polished experience on my iPhone 12 Pro Max.

    Entirely possible. But worst case alI have to do on the occasion when this version 'hangs' is a tap which beings up a 'set widget' prompt, tap that and it's ok....iOS updates and or App updates 'may' remedy going forward. The Widgetopia clock on my iPad Mini 4 is a lot better now too.
    Shades of some of the old geezers in the cockpit when first using glass displays, which were often glass re-creations of the older mechanical instruments. They would often tap the screens when what they saw wasn't what they expected . Most critical mechanical instruments on older model aircraft actual had 'vibrators' ie mini-hammers which keep up a knocking effect to keep the displays accurate through.
    In my years, DC9 & B727 were like that. Old piston engines provided enough vibration that instrument hammers weren't used.

    I think you got it!! - Processing power is at least part of the root. . Seems when other more 'complex' tasks are happening, more or less simultaneously like editing and attaching, I'm much more likely to show clock issues than when I'm simply reading, watching,or messaging. The 'paused clock' occurred twice as I was dealing with swapping out the iMore thread information of iPhone vs iPad Screenshots. So going forward I hope that iOS 14 gets a few internal tune-ups directed to 'classic' iPhones as did iOS7 on my 4s, in its inception days. It took several months for a priority seemed to be directed to the older, yet still compatible devices. I'm reasonably sure that gamers probably would see this as well, ( not myself) as any processor intensive games would cause much the same things to happen.
    We can only hope

    Apple has a way with getting the most out of processors, however as you have stated previously this is one of the best and most Apple has done for a iOS update in quite awhile. It just might be that time for a....*cough* new iPhone.

    Maybe towards the fall. Prices being equal to now, but with 'covid uncertainty' we are playing submariners living 'below periscope depth'. Possibly a battery replacement though. Will see what spring & summer brings as not planning any travel will probably free up significant funds Remember it would ring in above $4000 here for sure, and likely with limited choice of color or storage. Downside of consumerism in Coconut country . So for the meantime - "One Ping Only" ⚓️

    $4,000...WOW. It would literally be cheaper for you to fly (round trip) to the US and buy an unlocked iPhone.

    Quick perspective - a year ago, when I replaced my iMac and 'browsed' the  Authorized Reseller -iPhone 11pro and iMac ran neck & neck for price.
