If your iPhone or iPad widgets reset to default settings after you’ve restored from backup

Apple has discovered an issue where widgets may revert to their default settings after you’ve restored your iPhone or iPad from a backup.

This issue only affects a limited number of these devices:

  • iPhone 13

  • iPhone 13 mini

  • iPhone 13 Pro

  • iPhone 13 Pro Max

  • iPad (9th generation)

  • iPad mini (6th generation)

If you experience this issue, here’s how to customise your widgets again:

  1. Touch and hold a widget to open the quick actions menu.

  2. Tap Edit [widget name].

  3. Make your changes, then tap outside the widget to exit it.

If you can’t see Edit [widget name], the widget that you’re trying to edit has no settings that can be modified.
