Creating folders is always useful on any device, whether it’s an iPhone or an iPad running on iOS 10.3. First of all, it lets you better organize all the apps, widgets and icons from the Home screen and the App drawer. Second, it helps you declutter the workspace and give a more airy feeling, even when you have tens of different apps installed on your smartphone. And third, it allows you to express your personality by giving you more freedom on how you handle your apps and preferences, how you group icons by different common themes and so on.
Long story short, you can create folders on any iPhone or iPad in iOS 10.3. In this article, we’re going to show you two different methods for this purpose. We cannot really decide which one is simpler, so we’re going to let you have the final say:
- Select an app;
- Drag it over another app;
- You will see a field showing up on the screen, where you can type the name of the folder that you will soon create;
- Release the app and, together, they will form this new folder;
- Continue dragging and dropping new apps on top of the newly created folder.
- Press and hold a particular app located on the Home screen;
- Drag the app towards the top of the screen;
- Move it into the New Folder option from there;
- Edit the folder name;
- Select Done from the keyboard;
- Continue adding apps to this folder by retaking the steps presented in here.
These are the two methods you can use to group apps, icons, and folders together. As you can see, both rely on dragging and dropping, though the second method is an alternative that shows you how to create multiple app folders. iPhone and iPad devices on iOS 10.3, they all look similar and the steps for creating folders are just the same.
