Arrangement Mode

January 31, 2023

Arrangement Mode on the home screen, also known as “jiggle mode,” is a feature that allows users to reorganize the layout of their home screen, including moving, deleting, and creating new pages of apps.

When you enter Arrangement Mode, all the app icons on the home screen will shake, and you will see an “x” button on the corner of each app icon. You can move apps by pressing and holding on an icon and dragging it to a new location. You can delete apps by tapping the “x” button on an app icon. You can create new pages of apps by dragging an app to the right or left edge of the screen, creating a new page.

In addition, you can also create folders by dragging one app on top of another app. This allows you to group related apps, making it easier to find them.

It’s also worth noting that with iOS 14 and later versions, Apple has introduced the ability to put widgets on the home screen, which allows users to customize the home screen layout even more, showing relevant information at a glance.

To exit Arrangement Mode, you can either press the home button, tap an app icon, or press the Done button on the top-right corner of the screen.
