WordPress update drops support for iOS 12, adds new home screen widgets

The latest update to WordPress brings new iOS 14 widgets, an improved Quick Start tour and other changes.

Version 16.6 will be the last version of WordPress to support iOS 12. Starting from the next app update, iOS 13 or later will be required.

WordPress now supports the redesigned Home Screen widgets in iOS 14, offering your WordPress site stats for the day. Multiple sizes are available, but the feature is unreliable and doesn’t work with all sites.

Other improvements include a new Quick Start tour guide for new users, and filtering items in your site’s Activity Log.

WordPress is available from the App Store on iPhone and iPad for free.
