How to create or add a widget to a Smart Stack in iOS 14

iOS 14 comes with support for all new Widgets that you can add directly on your home screen and get access to some quick actions. Since you can’t add a lot of widgets on a single screen, iOS 14 comes with Smart Stacks that allows you to add two or more widgets together. It automatically keeps changing with time to show you relevant information on the screen and In addition to this, you can also scroll through the Smart Stack to see your favorite widget.

Apple also offers pre-built Smart Stacks but it may have widgets that are of no use to you. The Widgets on iOS 14 are available in 3 different sizes and hence when you want to create a Smart stack, you should group widgets of the same size together.
