How to Change and Select Photos in iOS 14 Photo Widget

All the iPhone users, with iOS 14 compatible iPhone, might have updated to the latest iOS and iPadOS and using widgets like Photos widgets on the home screen. But you might have noticed that the random pictures are displayed on the Photos widget and there is no option to select specific images. But with a third-party app installed from App Store, users can have full control over the Photos widget on iPhone and iPad and they can decide which photos should be shown.

Get Photo Widget App

By default, iOS 14 curates the images displayed in the Photos app widget from your favorites and recommended photos. In this respect, you cannot determine which photos to be shown in the Photos app widget. If you want to have control over which photos should be displayed in the widget, you can download the free app called Photo Widget from App Store. The app allows you to select certain photos to display them individually or in rotation in the widget on the home screen.
