Do you ever feel like your iPhone home screen is too cluttered? Do you wish you had a blank, clean slate to start from? Well, it's easier than you think. Here's how to have a blank iPhone home screen in no time at all.
The first thing to do is to remove all of the apps from your Home Screen that you don't need or use. To do this, simply tap and hold any app icon on your Home Screen until it begins to wobble. Then tap the little “x” in the corner of each app icon that you want to delete. Once you've deleted all the apps that you don't need, it's time to organize the remaining apps into folders.
To create a folder on your Home Screen, tap and hold any app until it begins to wobble, then drag it onto another app icon which will create a folder with both apps inside. You can also drag additional apps into this folder if desired. When finished creating your folders, tap outside of them to save them and make them stop wobbling. Now you can easily sort all of your Home Screen apps into their respective folders for easy access when needed.
Once everything has been sorted into folders, it's time to hide them away from view so that all that remains on your Home Screen is a blank canvas. To do this, go back into edit mode by tapping and holding any app icon until they begin to wobble again. Then select Edit Home Screen and drag the folder onto another folder or app in order to create a new folder window. This will hide away all of the contents of the original folder behind the new one and leave only one icon visible on your Home Screen – an empty folder!
And there you have it: a blank iPhone home screen! Now you can keep things organized while still having an aesthetically pleasing home screen with minimal clutter. Enjoy!
