Tip: Easier Method to Rearrange iPhone Apps Across Multiple Home Screens


You might have realized that as the number of iPhone apps have increased on your iPhone and spawned over multiple home screen, it has become more frustrating to arrange the iPhone apps across multiple home screens.

In case you have not figured it out already, there is a very easy method to rearrange iPhone apps across multiple home screens.

As an example, let us assume that you want to swap the position of iPhone app A from the first home screen with the iPhone app B from the third home screen.

  • One way is to press and hold down on one of iPhone Apps on the home screen for a second. This will cause the icons or buttons on the screen to dance and shake.
  • Then push iPhone app A from the first home screen to the next home screen page, and then ultimately to the third home screen.
  • Repeat the process to move iPhone app B to the first home screen.

The problem with this method is that it ends up creating a space for the application as you move it across pages that are full, and also results in pushing other apps by a position.

Here is the other method to rearrange icons on your iPhone’s multiple home screens:

  • Press and hold down on one of the iPhone apps on the home screen for a second. This will cause the icons or buttons on the screen to dance and shake.
  • Instead of moving iPhone app A from the first screen, move one of the dock apps say "Music" to the temporary home screen page (blank home screen page after the last home screen with icons).
  • Then move iPhone app A to the vacant position created by moving the Music app from the dock.
  • Go to the third home screen page, move iPhone app A from the dock to the position of iPhone app B.
  • Move iPhone app B from the third home screen page to the dock.
  • Then go to the first home screen page and move iPhone app B from the dock to the vacant position created by moving iPhone App A.

I found the second method to rearrange iPhone apps across multiple home screens to be a lot easier than the first one.

Update:

In case you want to move more than one iPhone app at a time, then follow the instructions provided by reader, RichardK, in the comments below. Thanks Richard.
