How to Use Folders on an iPhone

Learn how to use folders on an iPhone in this Howcast video.


Hi, Lisa here. And I'm gonna show you how to use folders on your iPhone. So, sometimes you have a lot of apps. And maybe you don't wanna scroll to all the pages of them. So, what you can do is you can make folders or you can group similar apps together. So, how you do it is you place your finger on an app and you press and hold until all of the apps start to move. So, while they're moving around, you can press your finger on the app you wanna move and then move it over one and that will make the folder with both of those apps inside of it.

Now, top you can title that whatever you like. So, you can take it out and change the name. Once that's done, you can press outside of that folder and now you can choose other apps to put in as well. And you can drop in as many as you would like. Once you're done making that folder, you're going to press the home button to stop them from moving, this will set that folder into place.

Now, to get inside of it, you tap once on the folder and then tap on the app you want to launch. Easy as that. So, that's how you use folders on the iPhone.
