iOS 16.2 brings new watchlist options to Stocks app and home screen widgets


Among a number of other changes, iOS 16.2 also includes some interesting changes to the built-in Stocks app on iPhone and iPad. The update brings new sorting options for your various watchlists in the Stocks app, which are also reflected in updated widgets for your iPhone and iPad home screen.

With iOS 16.2, which is currently in testing with developers and public beta users, the Stocks app now gives you finer control over sorting your various watchlists. Now you can have specific sorting modes for each of your watchlists. This means that you can choose to sort each of your watchlists by the following options:

  • Manual
  • Price change
  • Percent change
  • Market capitalization
  • Symbol
  • Last name

Each watchlist can also be configured to show the stock price change, percentage change, or market capitalization at a glance. This change gives you more granularity with the ability to sort each list by the data point you choose, instead of only being able to choose one option that applies to all of your different lists.

These changes are also supported through the Stocks app widgets on your iPhone or iPad home screen. The Stocks app offers a number of different widget options for your watchlists and individual stocks. With iOS 16.2, these new sorting options are also reflected in how your lists appear on your home screen.

iOS 16.2 is currently in beta testing with developers and public beta users. It should be made public in mid-December.
