Normally, you hold down on an app until it wiggles, then move it to a new location and let go. Rinse and repeat for multiple apps. This trick lets you accomplish this task much more efficiently. Here’s how.

  • Tap and hold down on an app until it wiggles.
  • While continuing to hold down the app, tap on other apps you’d like to move.
  • When you’re finished with your selection, move the group of apps to your desired spot, whether it’s the first screen on your Home page or another.
  • You can also tap a folder to relocate the apps there.

It helps to reorganize your apps from time to time to minimize swiping. This trick comes in handy when organizing new folders on your Home screen.

If you still find yourself swiping around to reach your favorite apps, it may be time to perform an app audit. Tap or click here for tips on getting rid of unwanted apps.
