With so many apps available for iPhone on the App Store, it doesn't take long before you download so many that managing them can start to get a bit tiresome and unwieldy. Having multiple pages of apps extending off the initial Home Screen can be a burden, especially if you like to organize what you can see on the screen into any sort of meaningful order.

apps
Fortunately, in iOS 14 and later, Apple allows you to hide individual pages of apps from sight. This not only gives your ‌iPhone‌ a tidier look and feel, but it also serves to bring the App Library closer to your initial ‌Home Screen‌, making it that much easier to access using fewer swipes.

How to Hide iPhone App Pages on the Home Screen

  1. Long press on a blank area of the ‌Home Screen‌ or any additional page of apps.
  2. Once in jiggle mode, tap the app page dot icons just above the Dock at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap to uncheck any app pages that you want to hide.
  4. Tap Done in the top-right corner of the screen to finish.
  5. Tap Done in the top-right corner to exit out of jiggle mode.

To reinstate any app pages you hid using this method, simply follow the steps again, but in step 3, check the app pages you want to unhide instead.

Am I the only person that has everything not on the home page in a folder?
yeah. Home Page has my most frequently used apps and the 2nd page is just apps put into categorized folders. Same reason I have no use for the new App Library screen

Answers to some questions asked:

Can you remove/disable the App Library? No, just don't keep swiping right.

Can you hide every homescreen? No, you have to have one selected.

Can the homescreens be re-arranged? No. Shame.

Why is this thing a thing? Dunno; maybe for people who have a page full of work apps they want to hide at home, or a page full of dating apps and porn links they want to hide at work.
