Microsoft announced Windows 11 today, including a long list of new features. The new operating system will support widgets, allowing developers to create interactive experiences. Widgets are popular on Android, iOS, and iPadOS, so adding support for them on Windows should help Microsoft catch up with its competition.

This is a developing story. We will add more information as it becomes available.
