We will show you five ways. First, you can keep your apps out of immediate view by putting them into folders. Hold down on the home screen to enable edit mode. Find two apps that you want to store in a folder. Drag one app on top of the other. You should see a frame appear around the app on the bottom. Then let go. You can further hide apps by moving them beyond the first page of the folder they're in. Tap and hold the home screen to enable edit mode. Then go into the folder. Choose the app you want to move. Move it to the right side of the folder until it reaches a second folder page. You can also hide apps from search. To do that, open settings. Tap "Siri & Search." Scroll down to the list of apps and tap the app that you want to hide from search. Turn off "Show App in Search." You won't see it if you search for it in spotlight search, and Siri won't make any suggestions related to the app. Even if you follow all of these steps, your app isn't completely hidden, as you could still find it in a folder. If you are looking to hide default apps that come on the iPhone, follow these steps. Go to settings. Go to "Screen Time." Go to "Content & Privacy Restrictions." Toggle "Content & Privacy Restrictions" on if it's not on already. Go to "Allowed Apps." Now you can hide the provided default apps from view. If you want to hide all apps with age restrictions, which are mainly social-media apps, go back to "Content & Privacy Restrictions." Go to "Content Restrictions." Go to "Apps." Set the age restriction to 4+ or 9+. You can also hide an entire page on your home screen. First, hold down on your home screen to begin edit mode. Click the row of dots on the bottom of the screen. Uncheck the page that you don't want to be visible. On the top right-hand corner, click "Done."
