For the DIY crowd
When iOS 14 allowed you to customize your Home Screen with custom widgets, layouts, and icons, a number of apps and icon packs sprung into existence to help you make your own custom Home Screen widgets. Many of them have been updated to allow you to make your own Lock Screen widgets, too. Some of these show select information, others give you one-touch shortcuts to specific contacts, message threads, locations, or even the ability to run the Shortcuts you’ve created.
