How to Create an Empty Homescreen on iPhone or iPad

Don't want apps to block the look of your fascinating wallpaper? Create a completely empty screen on your iPhone or iPad using this simple trick so that your beautiful wallpaper has the much-wanted license to catch eyeballs!

I try my best to ensure iPhone Home screen doesn’t look burdened by too many apps. But I like exploring new and exciting apps and hence can’t help downloading a ton of them on my device. As a result, the wallpaper doesn’t get the desired liberty to show its charm. Finally, I decided to create a completely blank Home screen on my iPhone to allow the fascinating wallpapers to shine without any restriction—but without deleting any apps!

Creating an empty Home screen on iPhone or iPad had never been so plain sailing before. You can transport all of your apps to another page to make your screen completely blank. If you don’t want to have the luxury of Dock, you have the option to keep it away as well.

How to Create a Blank Homescreen on iPhone and iPad

Step #1. Touch and hold an app on your iPhone Home screen.

Step #2. When you enter wiggle mode, drag an app and then drop it on another app to create a folder.

I would recommend you to create folders based on a particular category. For instance, put all of your social apps in a separate folder. And drop your entire productivity suite in one folder so that you can quickly access them.

Step #3. Once you have created folders, drag them all to another page.

You can also clear out the apps that are in the Dock. Drop them in a folder or drag them on another page.

Step #4. Next, press the Home button to stop apps from wiggling.

Note: On your iPhone x, tap on Done button to quit edit mode.

Behold! Your wallpaper has the complete freedom to shine in its full-fledged form.
