” How do I edit library apps in iOS 14? “. Obviously, many iPhone users who have updated their device are a bit confused by the new organization of the iOS home page.
To fully understand this new organization, you must first understand how it works. Previously, all downloaded apps ended up on one of the iOS home screen pages, either individually or in an apps folder. Now, iOS 14 lets you manage this Home screen so that you only see the apps you use most frequently. All apps, including those you don’t want to display on the Home screen, are still accessible from the app library.
This famous library, accessible from a screen located to the right of the main screen, is generated and organized automatically by iOS which groups each application by categories, as on the App Store. You cannot therefore modify this display.
However, you can definitely choose to remove an app from the Home screen, without uninstalling it, and only access it from the library. Likewise, an application accessible only from the library can easily find its place on the Home screen individually or within an application folder.
1. Remove an app from the home screen
Put the home screen in edit mode (keeping your finger pressed on an empty area) and press an app’s delete button, or tap and hold an app’s icon to bring up the options menu. Then press Delete the app then choose from Move to app library.
By choosing this choice, the application will no longer appear on your home screen, but will not be deleted from your device. It will remain accessible from the application library automatically generated by iOS and can be searched directly from the list view if necessary.
2. Display an application from the library on the home screen
Just as you can remove an app from the Home screen, iOS 14 also lets you add an app to the Home screen, from the Apps Library.
To do this, go to the application library, and locate an application that is not accessible either from the main iOS screen, or from an applications folder displayed on the home screen.
Tap and hold the app icon, and choose to add it On the home screen. If all went according to plan, it should automatically be added alongside the other apps already available.
3. Move an already accessible application to the home screen
Even if an application is already accessible from your Home screen, within a folder for example, you can go to the library to move it elsewhere on the main screen. To do this, enter edit mode by keeping your finger pressed on an empty area around the library.
Then keep your finger pressed on a vibrating icon to move it wherever you want on your screen. Note that if this application was present in a folder, it will no longer appear there after being moved from the library.
