This very brief tutorial will show you how to rename any existing folders you have on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

  1. Start out by tapping and holding-down your finger on the folder you want to rename. Wait until the folder starts to “wiggle” – then let go. Now tap that folder once.
  2. The “edit” window will appear. Tap the x located at the end of the field with the folder name in it (see screenshot below).

    THIS IS A COMMENT/QUESTION: My IPad2 won’t HOLD it’s charge. I stopped all active applications but it still won’t keep its charge. I fully charge it and overnight, it loses over half of the charge while it’s in “sleep” mode. Do you think I need a new battery?
