A FORMER Apple expert shared a clever iPhone hack you need to know.
The TikTok star says she used to work as an Apple genius – and now regularly posts handy tips.
Sabrina Badin has over 55,000 followers on the app and shares Apple hacks under the name @sabbadz.
And one of their best tricks is an easy way to clean yours iPhone home screen.
The Sun previously revealed this simple hack after it was added by Apple with iOS 14.
The trick is to hide pages on your home screen.
This means you have a much tidier experience and still be able to find all your apps.
“I do this every exam season, no distractions,” Sabrina told her fans.
The trick has earned hundreds of likes tick tock — and has been shared dozens of times.
All of this is thanks to the App Library, meaning there’s no longer a need for a home screen jam-packed with apps.
You can now hide apps from the home screen without having to delete them.
And you can even hide entire pages of apps to make your life easier.
The new Apple feature was added in iOS 14 and is still available in iOS 15.
To check if you are walking correctly iOS Version, go to Settings > General > Software update.
How does it all work?
First of all, if you scroll to the far right of your home screen, you now have a permanent app library.
This is where all your apps are stored and automatically sorted into their own categories.
So if you have apps on hidden home screen pages, they will still be visible in your app library.
Hiding a homescreen page is easy.
First, make sure any apps you want to hide are stored on a homescreen page that you’re also happy to hide.
Then press and hold your finger on the home screen until your app icons start to shake.
Next, tap on the speech bubble with dots at the bottom of your screen – the one that shows which page you’re on.
This will take you to a home screen view where you can hide individual pages – by “unchecking” them.
When you’re done, just click Done in the top right.
Those pages aren’t gone forever and will remain perfectly preserved until the next time you want to unhide them.
Of course, you can also leave them hidden forever.
You can still find hidden apps without going to the app library.
Just use the iPhone’s search bar (swipe down) or ask Siri.
