Apple has introduced a new StandBy mode in iOS 17 that converts your iPhone into a digital display that can show information from a distance. You can configure it to display the clock, photos, or widgets to get quick information.
But without the right set of Widgets, you'll just be wasting the opportunity. The same widgets that you use for your Home Screen won't work with StandBy unless they have been optimized for it. So, here's a list of some widgets that'll undoubtedly make a great addition to your iPhone screen in StandBy.
Best Productivity Widgets
While our phone is mostly responsible for pulling us in different directions, always distracting us, it'd be great to have it help with our productivity for a change, wouldn't it? With these widgets at your fingertips, or rather, on your StandBy screen, you can expect your productivity to shoot through the roof!
Best Health & Fitness Widgets
Whether you want to track your sleep, calories, workouts, or meditation, there's a widget for everything. Without even needing to open the app, you can keep track of your health & fitness or get an extra hand with sleep with these widgets on your StandBy screen.
Best Customization Widgets
Who doesn't love some customization? And why should that customization elude your StandBy widgets? With these widgets on your StandBy, you can customize the widget screen to launch an app, call a contact, or have aesthetic-looking widgets, like a sun-dial, hourglass, etc., on your screen that can provide a variety of information.
Best Social Widgets
If you're a social animal who needs widgets that'll help you keep track of your social life, these widgets below have got you covered. Whether you need a little help to stay in touch with your countless friends and family, or you're a content creator who needs to keep track of your followers, you can turn to these widgets!
Best Information Widgets
StandBy is made to get information at a distance. So, what good would this screen be without some widgets that'll get you "information"? From news to sports scores and weather reports, flight trackers to podcasts, there's something for every type of information seeker on this list.

If your mantra in life is, "Why so serious?" How can your StandBy screen stand to be a collection of just some serious widgets designed only to provide information or help you be more productive? So, here are some widgets that exist only to add some entertainment to your life!
StandBy mode in iOS 17 is a great feature, but you need the right set of tools at your disposal to completely enjoy it. With Widgets from these great apps, StandBy will become an arsenal of information for you.
