How to Create Folders For iPhone Apps & Games?

Last updated: February 9, 2015 at 9:41 am

Who would like to keep swiping between pages to launch their favourite app on your iPhone? Wouldn’t it be great to have all your most-used apps on your home screen?

Your iOS home screen can hold innumerable apps, thanks to folders. iPhone folders for apps (on any iOS device to be precise) are easy to create and great when for organising similar apps in one place. The best thing is you can add as many apps as you want. Simply amazing! So, what’s stopping you? In this beginner’s tutorial, you will learn the right (and it’s easy) way to create folders on your iPhones – so you can put any number of apps and games into it.

We usually put all the health apps in one folder and games into another. Want to learn how to do this?

Steps For Creating Folders & Putting Apps In Them On Your iPhone:

  • Go to your Home screen
  • Long press on the app you want to create a folder until all apps begin to wiggle
  • Hold your finger on your chosen app and drag it on top of another app you want in the same folder
  • iOS will create an automatic name for the folder; you can change the name by tapping on the name field
  • Click Done and tap outside the folder area to return to the Home screen
  • Drag any additional apps that you want in the folder onto the folder
  • Click the Home button to exit wiggly mode
  • To add an app to an existing folder, long press the app to enter wiggly mode
  • Drag your chosen app onto the folder you want to add it to
  • Click the Home button to exit wiggly mode

Whoa, that was super easy, right?

Remember: You can put a maximum of 20 apps or games per folder.

Note: To remove an app from a folder, you need to perform the same steps. In place of dragging an app onto a folder, you just need to drag it out of the folder. That’s it!
