How to Hide/Rearrange Sharing Menu Icons in iOS 8 on iPhone and iPad

If you’re another social animal like me, you might be well aware with the “share sheet,” which is a small window that pops up whenever you tap on the share icon on your iPhone. Until iOS 7, the sharing options were limited, but the arrival of iOS 8 made it super easy to share photos, links and other items on different social media.

Well, we now know that Apple is finally making things better. That said, iOS 8 has an option to hide or rearrange the social sharing icons based on users’ preference. Though the share sheet has become a lot better and gives access to many useful actions, many users still don’t know that they can rearrange (and even hide) the sharing and action buttons to suite their personal taste.
