Discover how to get the most out of your iPhone or iPod touch, from making calls, browsing the web, managing your time, and getting around town to taking notes, shooting photos, and listening to music. In this course, author Garrick Chow shows how to perform all of these tasks and more, and introduces the enhancements built into iOS 6, including enhanced language support and commands for Siri, shared photo streams, and the new Reply with Message feature for handling incoming calls. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations on how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and offers tips for personalizing the setup of the iPhone and iPod touch. An extensive section on troubleshooting helps when the occasional glitch happen.
Instead of cluttering your device with screen after screen of dozens of apps, you can group related apps together into folders. To do so, just press and hold down your finger on any app until they start wiggling. In this mode, you can drag apps around to rearrange them on screen. But to create a folder, just drag one app on top of another. That instantly creates a folder, and your iPhone or iPod touch even tries to give the folder a logical name. If that name works for you, just tap anywhere outside the folder to accept it. You can also tap the name and type one of your own.
You can then drag up to 10 more apps into that folder for a total of 12 apps per folder. Click the Home button when you're done adding items to your folder. From this point, you can then access the apps in the folder by tapping the folder, and then tapping the app you want to use. If you want to remove an app from a folder at any time, just touch and hold on the folder, or the apps within the folder, until the icon start wiggling again. This is also the point where you can rename the folder if you like, but if you to remove an app from the folder, just drag it out. But most likely, you'll find the folder feature extremely useful and beneficial especially as you start to add more and more apps to your device.
So, that's how to create and use folders on the iPhone and iPod touch.
