Your iPhone may look cluttered – but it’s not necessary.
Apple designed an easy way to clean up Iphone and make the Home screen much better.
It’s all thanks to the App Gallery, which means there’s no longer a need to have a Home screen filled with apps.
You can now hide apps from your Home screen without having to delete them.
And you can even hide entire app pages to make your life easier.
The new Apple feature was added in iOS 14 and is still available in iOS 15.
To check if you’re running the right version, go to Settings > General > Software Update.
So how does it all work?
For starters, you now have a permanent App Gallery if you scroll all the way to the right of your home screen.
This is where all your apps are stored, and they’re automatically organized into their own categories.
So if you have any apps on hidden home screen pages, they will still show up in your App Gallery.
Hiding the home screen page is very simple.
First, make sure that any apps you want to hide are also hosted on the home screen page that you also want to hide.
Then hold your finger on the home screen until your app icons start to jiggle.
Next, tap the bubble with the dots inside at the bottom of the screen – the dot shows which page you’re on.
This will take you to a home screen view that allows you to hide individual pages – by “unediting” them.
Once done, just click Done in the top right corner.
These pages do not disappear forever and are perfectly preserved until the next time you want to show them.
Of course, you can also leave them hidden forever.
You can still find hidden apps without going to the App Gallery.
Simply use your iPhone’s search bar (scroll down) or ask Siri.
