Open up your iPhone, unlock it, and go to your home screen.
Look for the apps you want to put into a folder together. Start with one category.
In my case, I have a few TV related apps scattered across my home screen. So, find a couple apps that have enough in common to be in the same folder.
Press and hold down one of the apps you are wanting to put in a folder. Hold it down until it shakes and you are able to edit the home screen. Then, let go.
The apps on your home screen should all be shaking. Drag one of the apps you want in the folder ontop of the other app you want in the folder.
A folder will be automatically created and a default title is created based on the types of apps your've put into the folder. In this case, the default name was "entertainment."
Now, take a moment to decide if you like the title of the folder or want to add more apps to the folder.
To edit the folder name, click the "x" next to the folder title. You may have to press the folder name briefly first to be able to edit it. Then, the keyboard will pop up, so that you can change it accordingly.
To add other apps to the folder try the following:
- Go to your home screen.
- Press and hold the app you want to add to the folder.
- When it starts jiggling, let go.
- Drag and drop the app into the folder.
As you can see, I added another app to my folder that was relevant and renamed it "TV."
That's it! Now, keep going until your home screen is just how you want it.
Sometimes, when you are busy or out and about and your iPhone starts ringing, you don't want to pick it up, but you know it might be so-and-so with that important call you've been waiting on.
