How to create, rename, and delete folders on an iPhone or iPad
An app folder basically works like it would on PC. The user can bundle up as many icons as they wish in one place. This way, instead of having 24 games take up an entire homescreen, one can have all of them in a folder, keeping the homescreen amount down.
Creating a folder
To put apps in a folder, tap and hold on one of the apps you will be bundling together. You will see the screen go in “edit mode” (all the app icons start wiggling) – now, while keeping your finger on the screen, you can drag the icon you chose and place it right on top of another app that you wish to put in the same folder. Doing this will automatically bundle the apps together.
Renaming a folder
iOS is quite smart about folder naming. When you first create a folder, it will detect the type of apps that you put together, and will name the group accordingly – Utilities, Games, Organizer, etc. However, you can name it however you like by tapping on the text field while still in homescreen edit mode.
Secret tip: you can drag multiple apps at once
Deleting a folder
To destroy a folder, simply drag all of the apps out of it. As you remove the last one, the folder will dissolve into nothing.
