How to Change the Layout of an iPhone 8 Plus

Share this

The iPhone 8 Plus is one of the most recent models from Apple, and while it has been out on the market for a few years, it’s still a compelling and capable alternative to some of the flagship models the company has. One of the most appealing characteristics of Apple phones is that they have a very user-friendly design. You can customise almost any element of the phone, and it’s possible to do so without knowing masses about how it works.

So if you want to change the layout for your phone, and rearrange the applications that you have for it, you can do this. We’re going to be taking a look at what you need to do to be able to move your apps around.

Moving Apps Around

So let’s talk about how you go about moving applications around on your iPhone 8 Plus. Thankfully, it’s not that difficult to do. Of course, what’s comfortable for one person is not easy for another, so let’s start from the top. 

To start with, just press and hold on any app you want. It doesn’t matter which. If you’ve done it correctly, then all of the applications will start to move and jiggle. Now you can quickly move them around to suit your needs and requirements. 

To change the position of an app, just pick it up and move it with your finger. It’s worth mentioning that when you do this, you’ll be putting the application into the same space that a different one occupied. To accomplish this, the whole page is moved along one square. Every app will move along to the right, and some will go onto the next page as a result. Don’t worry, though; you can just drag and drop to suit your needs. 

Making Folders

If you pick up an application and allow it to sit on top of another one, then you’ll create a folder. This feature is a part of the organisation layout, which will enable you to collect applications which have a similar function and then put them all in one place. Apple will suggest titles for these folders too, so it becomes easy to order things. Plus, if you collect everything into folders, you can see your home screen wallpaper a little better, so the options are pretty limitless.

So, there are a lot of options for you to consider when it comes to customising your phone. Apple’s made it easy for people to experiment and change things according to their whims. As you can imagine, this makes them quite accessible. With multiple ways to stylise your lock screen and a selection of different options available, there’s all the variety you could need. Plus, the opportunity to create a folder is there if you need it. Being able to put all the apps that serve a similar function in one place is very helpful. Surprisingly, more people don’t categorise like this, but hey – it’s the choice you’ve always got available.
