Tweak your iPhone's Home Screen

Find out how to make it way better.

iOS 18 reportedly will let you get creative with the placement of app icons on your iPhone’s Home Screen.

Instead of an inflexible grid of icons, you’ll be able to space them out, add empty rows or columns, and more.

But you already can do quite a lot with your iPhone Home Screen, especially if you add widgets and folders for your apps.

Here’s our guide on how to get started customizing your iPhone’s Home Screen.

  • This is an interesting theory: Apple’s ready to roll out new iPads, but has been waiting for a software update to install on the new tablets before they ship. And guess what? The update just got released.

  • MacPilot is interesting software. It lets you delve into macOS’ Unix guts and customize more than 1,200 options. And it’s on sale.

  • Ugreen is known for its great and inexpensive chargers. The company just launched a new line of NAS devices on Kickstarter with insane storage capacities up to 184TB — and 40% early-bird discounts.

  • This calm and relaxing setup is based on an M2 Mac mini. It makes me feel productive just looking at it.
