Thanks to iOS 8, Apple lovers finally have access to widgets on their iPhones. But users will find some widgets more useful than others. Maximize their utility by deleting widgets you don't need to see in the Today view in Notifications and arranging the rest in the most convenient order.

To delete and reorder widgets, swipe down from the top of your homescreen to open Notifications. Tap on the Today tab and scroll down until you see the Edit button and tap on it. Tap on the red circle to the left of the widget to delete it from your Today view and tap on the green circle to include it. Hold and drag the three horizontal bars on the right of the widget to rearrange the order. Tap Done when you are finished.
