Ios 14.1, collapsing widgits on the homescreen?

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

So I took the plunge, and decided to upgrade to ios 14. So far I like, but I have one question. So far, I only have one widgit on my homescreen. However, each time I pass over said widgit, it automatically opens, for example, I swipe to the widget, and it'll say, battery, widgit, igna's iPhone, and the percentage, if I swipe to the right, it'll announce my other devices battery, the same thing happens when I'm going from right to left. Is there a way of collapsing the widgit, so that whenever I pass through it no matter left to right or right to left, it only displays the widgit, and if I where to double tap on it, then the widgit would open and display the battery information? Is this possible? Also, is there a way to have voiceover stop announcing toolbars? For instance, in safari, if I'm on the main content of the page, and then tap where the tabs button is, voiceover says, toolbar, tabs. Is there a way to revert it back to where it just said tabs, like in ios 13?

Get the new update, maybe that will fix it. I deleted them because it was affecting my battery and is nice but did not like ie much.

No there is not, but you can put them into a stack. A widget is there to show information, you cannot make them just show title. I love them actually and used them on android for years.

Hay, actually you can remove the toolbar word by going to settings>accessibility>VoiceOver>verbosity. There, double tap on container description. On my settings, i choose only play sound.
