Folders make your apps easier to find and help you clean up your home screen. It is a great method for organizing your iPhone and simplifying your experience with it to group your apps into folders. Since I am a fan of keeping apps in the same category, I was delighted when iOS started grouping apps automatically in the App Library.
iPhone users can be divided into two kinds: those searching for apps by name or going through their folders to find them. I definitely fall into the first category. Here are the instructions for those who wish to join the first group.
How to create an App Folder on an iPhone
An app can be dragged and dropped onto another app on your iPhone’s home screen to make a new folder. Afterward, both apps will be moved to their new folders.
You first need to locate the first app you wish to add to a new folder. Once all your app icons start jiggling, tap and hold on to this app.
You can drag your first app onto another app while your icons are still jiggling. As a result, a new folder will be created containing both of your selected apps.
As you move apps to the new folder, your iPhone will assign the folder a name that is appropriate for those apps. Renaming a folder is as simple as opening it, tapping and holding the existing name, and typing a new name.
You can add more apps by dragging apps from your home screen and dropping them into your new folder. Similarly, you can remove apps from your folder by dragging them outside. You don’t delete your apps when you do this; only your folders are deleted. Your iPhone now has folders and groups for apps. Your iPhone home screen will be decluttered soon!
