On iPhone, the number of apps that can be integrated directly into the quick access dock is limited. Four locations are provided to always have them on hand, whatever page you are on. That’s good enough for most users, but certainly not enough for big fans of games, social media, or other apps. Fortunately, it is possible to multiply the number of apps accessible in the dock. The trick is basic, intended primarily for those new to the iOS platform, but it can be used! Here it is detailed below.
Create an apps folder
To create a folder or group of apps on iOS, it’s easy:
- Hold down on an app icon, until you see all the icons shake, synonymous with changing position and possible uninstallation
- While still holding the support, drag the app icon onto another, to form the group
- By releasing the support, a file is formed
- To open the folder, tap on it
- To rename it, make a long press on its title
Drag the folder into the app dock
Folders work like app icons. Thus, it is possible to keep the support on a backrest to modify its position.
- Hold down on the desired folder and drag it into the app dock, in one of the 4 positions
- Let go of your finger, the apps folder becomes accessible from the dock
It is possible to integrate many apps in a folder, on several pages. Moreover, to add an app to a folder, all you have to do is drag its icon to the target folder.
This tip tenfold the number of apps accessible from the dock, even if using a folder adds an action required to open an app stored in it.
