In iOS, Apple lets you disable individual Home Screen pages on your iPhone. It's also possible to rearrange the order of your ‌‌Home Screen‌‌ pages, and delete pages outright rather than merely disable them. Here's how it works.

How to Rearrange Home Screen Pages

  1. Touch and hold a space on the ‌Home Screen‌ to enter jiggle mode.
  2. Tap the row of dots representing your ‌Home Screen‌ pages.
  3. In the ‌Home Screen‌ grid that appears, touch and drag a page to rearrange it in relation to your other pages. The others will move to make way in response to your drag action.
  4. Tap Done in the top-right corner of the screen when you're happy with the new arrangement, then tap Done again to exit jiggle mode.

How to Disable or Delete Home Screen Pages

  1. Touch and hold a space on the ‌Home Screen‌ to enter jiggle mode.
  2. Tap the row of dots representing your ‌Home Screen‌ pages.
  3. In the ‌Home Screen‌ grid that appears, tap the checkmark next to a page to uncheck/disable it, or tap the minus (-) icon in the top-left corner of a page to delete it, then tap Delete in the prompt to confirm.
  4. Tap Done in the top-right corner of the screen when you're finished.

If you disable a ‌Home Screen‌ page, you can re-enable it by tapping the checkmark icon next to it again so that the checkmark reappears. When you delete a ‌Home Screen‌ page, the apps that were on the page are not deleted and remain in the App Library. You will have to drag them out of the App Library if you want to re-add them to the ‌Home Screen‌.

I didn’t like the App Library at first. However I then tried making do with just one Home Screen that contained some widgets and my most used apps and using the App Library for everything else. Once I started using the App Library it grew on me. All my most used apps are on top, and I can search for those I use more rarely.

The App Library is born from good intentions, it's just poorly implemented. Apple has no idea how to categorize apps, and the developers can't be trusted to label them either. As a result, Todoist, FedEx, and Venmo get grouped together.

All they need is smart folders based on user-created tags.

Add me to the list of people who want the ability to disable the App Library.

I doesn't serve a purpose for me. They try to bundle together related apps... but sometimes they make weird choices. So I'd have to hunt for the apps anyway.

And it attempts to put the 3 most important apps available at the top of the folder... and you must dig deeper to see the rest.

Well if an app is that important... it's already on one of my home screens. So why do I need it on top in the App Library?

And for infrequently-used apps... I'm not gonna wade through the App Library. Search works just fine.

So yeah... I'm not a fan... though I understand if some people are. I just want the option to hide/disable it.
