A strange but true tip that seems to work for a lot of folks is toggling on “Bold Text” in the Display & Brightness setting. Go to Settings Once you have explored the notification settings of the widgets, Press the home button and wake/sleep button for 10 seconds or so and let your i Device restart.
Another oddball suggestion is to go to your regional settings and change your language and then change it back (I switch from U. Restarting the device often fixes your widget content problem in i OS 10 .
Since a couple of days/weeks, I noticed that my widgets aren't updating anymore on my home screens of my Nexus 6 (Android 6.0.1).
It's not related to a single widget, it's all of them.
But because there were some problems with applications I use daily, I reverted back to my old Android 6.0.1 build. Maybe something with battery optimizations or something?
I don't have to mention to you that widgets that aren't updating are very annoying.
Update: An update to the News & Weather app posted yesterday, September 8th, seems to have fixed some of the compatibility errors people have been seeing.
At least here in the United States, the app is compatible with every Android 4.0 device for all of our writers.
I had all of the standard widgets like Music, News & Weather, and Power Control, but no option for Facebook, Twitter, or any other apps I installed.
As I already mentioned, I'm using a Motorola Nexus 6 with stock Android 6.0.1 on it.
I have all the latest version of the Android version for my phone, and have installed all security patches.
You discover that your widgets are not working or they fail to populate then start working again and then fail to fill-in yet once again–all for no apparent reason. It’s so frustrating to find yourself in this place, we know.
So here are some suggestion to help get your widgets up and running, so you get that test drive i OS experience!
