Create Folders to Group App Icons Together
With a recent iPhone software update, the ability to create folders was released. This feature keeps several apps stored together within a folder that is displayed as one icon on the iPhone. It is a great feature to store similar apps together and condense your home screen to fewer pages. You are able to create a folder with as little as two different apps; as many as 12 apps may be stored in 1 folder. Currently, the max number of folders that iPhone can create is 180.
To Create a Folder on iPhone:
1) Press and hold one app icon that you'd like to make a folder with. Continue to hold down on the app icon until iPhone enters edit mode (app icons shake on the screen and those that can be deleted have a small 'x' in the corner).
2) While holding your finger down, drag the app on top of another app that you would like in the same folder and let go. iPhone automatically creates a folder and guesses the category name for your folder.
3) To add other apps to the folder, find them and drag them into the folder that was created.
4) To rename a folder while in edit mode, tap the folder you'd like to change the name for. When the folder opens, the name of the folder will appear in a white text bar at the top. Tap in the bar to open the keyboard and edit the name.
