This tutorial was created in response to several emails I’ve received on the subject. It’s another one of those “obvious, but easily overlooked” topics.
- To change the order of the icons on your iPhone or iPod Touch home screen (often referred to as the springboard) – tap and hold down any one of the icons. After holding down the icon for a couple of seconds, all of your icons will start to “wiggle”, and the applications that can be removed – generally those you have installed from the App Store – will have small X’s in the upper-left corner.
- While the icons are wiggling, tap and hold down the one you want to move, and drag it to whatever location you want.
- Repeat step #2 until you’re happy with your springboard layout. When you’re done, click the “bottom” button on your iPhone/iPod Touch.
