iPad Today View: Where Did It Go in iPadOS 15?

Before iPadOS 15, currently available in beta and available to the public in the fall, you could only add widgets to an iPad Home screen by having them in Today View and pinning it to the Home screen. The new iPadOS update lets iPad users enjoy widgets anywhere on their iPad. This means that your pinned Today View may have disappeared from your Home screen, but it's not gone!

What Is Today View on iPad

Today View is available on both iPad and iPhone. You can see it by swiping all the way right from your Home screens. Today View helps you get information from your favorite apps at a glance. You can edit it, and you can remove and add widgets from it. However, you can also have widgets on your regular Home screen.
