For those of you who like to rearrange the Home screen on your iPhone and iPad to organize your apps, you might be interested to know that there’s a handy little hidden feature for moving multiple apps at one time.
With this option, you can move multiple apps from your Home screen to another screen or into a folder, making organization a breeze.
Here’s how to do it:
- Press and hold to make all of your apps wiggle, like you’d do to move or delete an app.
- With a finger, drag the first app that you want to move away from its initial position.
- With a second finger, tap the additional app icons that you want to add to your stack, while keeping the first finger on the first app.
That’s all there is to it! Each app that you’ve tapped will be stacked up with the first app that you dragged. You can assign the entire stack to a folder, or drag it over to a new Home screen page.
If that list of instructions sounds a bit confusing, just check out our video above for a hands-on walkthrough of the steps.
