Arrange your apps - iPad User Guide


Rearrange the Home screen and customize the Dock. Touch and hold any app on the Home screen, then drag it to where you want it on the Home screen (wait until the apps rearrange to lift your finger). Drag the app to the edge of the screen to move it to a different Home screen page, or drag it to the left side of the Dock at the bottom of the screen.

You can also touch and hold an app until the app icons jiggle, drag the app to where you want it, then press the Home button to save your arrangement. To select multiple apps to move at once, touch and hold an app until the app icons jiggle, drag the app slightly, then tap additional apps with another finger.

Create a new Home screen page. While arranging apps, drag an app to the right edge of the last Home screen page. The dots above the Dock show how many Home screen pages you have, and which one you’re viewing.

Start over. Go to Settings > General > Reset, then tap Reset Home Screen Layout to return the Home screen and apps to their original layout. Any folders you’ve created are removed, the original wallpaper is restored, and apps you’ve downloaded are placed after apps that came with your iPad.
