Try to refresh your home screen layout for your iPhone? Happily, iOS 15 makes it easy for you. You may now reorder your home screen pages effortlessly and even quickly conceal or remove an overall home screen. Here’s how your iOS 15 home screens may be instantly customized.

How to reorder your iOS 15 Home Screen pages

Tap and hold a blank place on your iPhone on any Home Screen page until the app icons jig. Tap the dot row over the dock now. This displays thumbnails of all your iPhone’s home screen pages. Hold and drag any Home Screen Thumbnail in the Home Screen slider to change its location. Tap the Done button in the top right corner and enjoy your new arrangement once you are done adjusting.

If a few home screen sites you’re weary of, but not ready to remove them, iOS 15 can conceal them away. Tap any blank space on your home screen repeatedly until the app icons jiggling and hit the dot row. Tap the checkmark below one of them you want to hide if you see thumbnails of all the Home Screen pages. To confirm the modification, tap Done.

Hidden Home Screen pages are still on the page, so you may go back to it and tap the circle under a thumbnail to inspect it and re-hide it. Recall the unchecked thumbnails of the home screen indicate hidden pages, and that reveals home screens with thumbnails.

If you want a whole home screen page in iOS 15 to be removed quickly, go to the home screen editor page as stated above. Tap the controls under a Home Screen thumbnail on this page. Tap. Tap on the icon below the upper-left side of the thumbnail once it is unchecked. You will receive a confirmation pop- up, which allows you to tap Remove to unlock the home screen and transfer applications to the application library. Sadly, all of your iOS widgets will be removed too, so first, if you want to avoid manually re-adding them, you should relocate them to another home screen.

The main step to ensure a clean iPhone layout is to send all newly installed applications to the App Library and not to a home screen, making them conveniently accessible. All apps appear on the Home Screen by default and can create endless clutter pages. Change it using Settings > Home Screen, and choose App Library only with newly downloaded applications.

You may always drag your finger down the screen from any home screen to unlock the search bar of the app in case you cannot discover your new application in the App Library (accessed by swiping through all of your home screens and swiping the last time). You can add it to the Home Screen if you click on any app icon in the App Library.
