Actions widgets are now interactive. On an Actions widget on your Home Screen, tap an item on the list. You can then either open the app by tapping the arrow or you can mark the item complete by tapping the check mark.
This is a great new feature in iOS17. Turn your iPhone on its side when it is charging to see a curated display of your important information. You can turn your iPhone into a bedside clock, an interactive picture frame, a music control centre and more. For Actions, Standby mode works with Schedule, List and Next Action widgets so you can have your To Do list visible through the day.
