Day One widgets for iOS

Day One has four separate widgets for the Today View on iOS. Here is how to use them.

You can add any of the four Day One widgets on the Today View on iOS. Starting in iOS 14, users can add these to the home screen for additional customization. There are now different size options users can choose for Widgets.

The options are Daily Prompt, On This Day, Streak, and Today. See this guide from Apple on how to enable widgets in iOS 14:
