One of the beautiful things about using an Apple iPhone or iPad in iOS 11 is that you never have time to get bored with it. More often than not, you’ll find new settings to tweak, new apps to install, and new widgets, icons, and folders to arrange and rearrange. It’s all about making it more personal and accessible, right? Which is why today we would like to share some hints with you on how to better control the details from your Home Screen.
We are talking about the icons that are now probably covering much of your working space and how you can better group and organize the apps within folders. Just because you’re using a device in iOS 11 it doesn’t mean that there are many differences in this chapter or that it will have to be more difficult than it used to be on other versions of operating system. But let us take all these things one at a time.
iPhone/iPad in iOS 11 – Adding and adjusting the Home Screen widgets
This one can be done from the Edit Screen, easily accessible if you just press and hold an empty space of your Home Screen wallpaper. Once the Edit Screen launches, tap the Widget icon listed at its bottom and you’ll access the list with all the widgets currently available on your Apple device. Select one widget you wish to add and long press if you want to either remove it or to customize its settings. You’ll spot the details on the go.
iPhone/iPad in iOS 11 – Creating new folders
This action will require the selection of a particular app that you know you will move in the folder that you are about to create. As you hold that app, drag it towards the top of the screen and only release it on the New Folder option. The Home Screen of your iPhone or iPad in iOS 11 will then open a small window on the display, the window of your New Folder. Edit its name and select, from the keyboard, Done. Continue dragging and releasing other apps right on top of this folder if you want to group them in one place.
iPhone/iPad in iOS 11 – Moving and rearranging old icons
If you’ve seen how easy it is to create a folder and move apps on it, you’ll get the point. Rearranging other icons straight on the Home Screen will be just the same. Hold an icon, drag it to an empty space of the screen, and release it right there. It’s pretty intuitive to work on your iPhone or iPad in iOS 11, isn’t it?
