1. Move Apps Icons to Another Location on the Same Page
  • Find the app that you want to move to a different location on the same page.
  • Hold on the app icon until all the app on the Home screen starts to wiggle and then lift off your finger.
  • Touch and hold on the icon that you want to move and drag it to the new position that you want it to appear.

  1. Move Icons to a Different Home Screen
  • Find the app that you want to move to a different page.
  • Hold on the app icon until all the app on the Home screen starts to wiggle and then lift off your finger.
  • Drag the app to the right edge of the screen to get to another home screen where you want the icon located. At times, you may have to pause a bit to wait for the new page to open. Tap on the home button or “Done” at the top-right corner of the screen to stop the wiggling.

TIP: If you want to know the number of pages that you have on your home screen, you can count the dots above the Dock and know the exact number. It is essential to remember that dragging an app from one screen to another is a bit tricky, and you can always try again if you do not make it in the first attempt.

  1. Move Icons to the Dock and out of the Dock
  • Hold on any app icon on your home screen for a while, and all the apps will start to wiggle.
  • When the app icons are still wiggling, drag an icon out of the Dock to create a room for the new icon that you want to position in the Dock.
  • Drag other preferred apps into the Dock and tap on the home button or “Done“ button at the top-right corner of the screen or swipe up from the bottom of the screen (for iPhone X and the later versions) to stop the wiggling.
  1. Move Icons to an App Folder
  • Create an app folder before you can drag apps into the folder using the following steps.
  • On the home screen, touch on any app of your choice and hold until the icons begin to wiggle and then lift off your finger.
  • Drag one of the apps that you want to put into the folder onto another app of your choice. By doing that, a folder will appear with the two apps inside.
  • Tap on the name field to rename your folder.
  • When through with renaming the folder, tap on the home button or the “Done “button at the top-right corner of the screen or swipe up from the bottom of the screen (for iPhone X and the later versions) to complete the process. If you want to delete the folder in the future, open the folder and drag all the apps out, and the folder will automatically get deleted.
  • Drag other apps of your choice into the folder. Since the folder can hold many apps, you can drag the apps that you want to be located in the folder and drop them in the folder.
  • When through with adding other apps into the folder, tap on the home button or the “Done “button at the top-right corner of the screen or swipe up from the bottom of the screen (for iPhone X and the later versions) to complete your task.
