    Hello again all......
    Does anyone know how to “delete” this new “Today View” thing that’s on the left side of the home screen??

    You can’t remove Today View from your Home Screen completely. A workaround would be to remove all the widgets.

    Hi Ken - not completely clear if your 'Today View' is just there or you are swiping to bring it up? But just a couple of questions: 1) In Settings > Display & Brightness - are you using the 'More' or 'Bigger' home screen layout; and 2) Do you use landscape mode most of the time or have the orientation locked in that view? I'm on the 'bigger icons' and the widget edit menu is different, i.e. does not allow 'pinning' of Today View to the home screen in landscape mode, BUT just to test I switched to the smaller icon option and then was able to select the top selection below in the pic.

    SO, if you switch to the larger icons, the home screen pinning is NOT available or in the smaller icons screen can be switched off - I've also limited what I see when I swipe on my home screen to just 5 widgets shown below - for more help see LINK 1 and LINK 2. Dave

    Removing all the widgets does not eliminate the Today view. It leaves you with the clock, date, and the edit button; and a lot of blank space.

    The three choices are:

    1) Use the Bigger view, which acts like much like iOS 12. Swiping from the left edge replace the entire screen with the Widget/Today view. However, you only get 15 icons per screen.
    2) Use the More view and be able to swipe the widgets on/off the left 1/3rd of the main Home Screen.
    2) Use the More view and “Keep Today View on Screen” so that the main Home Screen always shows the widgets.

    Thanks for that tip twerppoet I’m always in locked landscape mode and I just switched it to “bigger” mode which was just what I was looking for!! I never would have found it.
    It was in “more” mode. Thanks for all the help...Ken

    I keep my iPad in landscape mode. "right side up" portrait mode seems sort ofodd to me any more.
