To move apps and create folders on your iPad:

  • Tap and hold on an app that you’d like to move. You will see a pop up window appear. Ignore that pop up window and keep holding on to the app icon. The pop up window will disappear.

  • The app icon will wiggle.
  • Then drag the app icon to another homepage or to another location on the iPad.
  • If it’s an app that you use often, you can drag the app to the dock on the iPad.

  • To make a folder, tap and hold on an app that you’d like to have in a folder. Then drag it on top of another app that you’d like in the folder. Then let go of the app.
  • Apple creates a default name for the folder. You can tap on it and delete the default name to rename the folder.
