How to hide apps on an iPhone

You can hide apps on your iPhone in two different ways, either by hiding a single app or multiple apps at once. All apps that you hide will appear in your App Library, a feature on your iPhone which shows all the apps you have downloaded, organized in categories such as “Creativity,” “Entertainment” and “Social.” You can find the App Library by swiping to the right past each home screen page.

According to Apple, to hide a single app follow the steps below:

  1. Locate the app you want to hide.
  2. Hold your finger down on the app until a menu of options appears
  3. Tap “Remove App.”
