iOS 10 Lock Screen Widgets: How to Turn Them Off

A new feature with iOS10 was the introductions of notification widgets on your lock screen.   They look something like this.

Now some of these widgets can be helpful or they may annoy you completely!   There are two ways going about getting rid of these!   The first is to stop them all together!

First on your home screen go into Settings.

Then look for the Touch ID and Passcode options and select it.

That will bring up this screen, look for Today View and Notification View.   If they are both green that means they are turned on.  Press the button until they turn white and that shuts off all those widgets.

Now, perhaps you like some of those notifications there is a way to shut off some of them! Go to your home screen and lock your phone.   Swipe to the right once and these widgets should show up.

Scroll down to the bottom of this screen and you will find an edit button at the bottom.

Once you hit the edit button this screen will appear.

If you notice the red circle with the line through it on the left, click on it.  It will bring a slide screen from the right that says remove.  Hit remove and poof it’s gone!   Up Next will let you know what is next in your schedule on your calendar.  The one I have selected is Calendar and that will remove any calendar widgets showing up on your home/locked screen.

This is also where you can add more widgets.  I like APPY Geek because it alerts me to the latest tech news!
