Your iPhone gives you the option to create folders where you may group related apps together to better manage your apps. This facilitates discovering apps and clears up the home screen of your phone. On your iPhone, we'll demonstrate how to create and remove such folders.
If you're like most people, your iPhone probably has hundreds of applications, some of which you use frequently and others of which you just sometimes use but won't uninstall.
If you're someone who likes a little more structure, having a lot of downloaded applications might mean having to go through several screens to get the one you want.
How to make folders iPhone
- Touch and hold the backdrop of the Home Screen until the applications start to jitter.
- To create a folder, drag one app over another app.
- Other apps can be dragged inside the folder.
- The folder might contain many pages of apps.
- Touch and hold the folder, choose Rename, and then type a new name to rename it.
- Tap the backdrop of the Home Screen and try again if the applications start to shake.
- When done, hit Done twice, then tap the backdrop of the Home Screen.

How to create a new folder on an iPhone

It could take a moment for the new page to load. Consolidate all of your apps onto another Home Screen before deleting a page. The page will disappear when there are no applications available.
When there are many pages, the page you are on is indicated by a bright dot in a row of dots above the Dock. You may make new pages and transfer apps to various pages:
You may drag an app to the right side of the screen to advance it to the next page if there are dots to the left or right of the bright dot. To view the applications on that page, swipe left, or click.
