Stack em up into a folder and bring them down. You wont have to worry about reaching apps. Plus the wallpaper is cleaner. You're welcome :cool:

By leaving most of the screen empty, doesn't that defeat the purpose of getting a large iPhone a little? Looks nice though.

That makes sense to not use the extra real estate when buying a 6 inch phone.. In all seriousness, this is quite stupid

For me, no because the larger screen is more beneficial/beautiful within apps rather than looking at rows of icons.

Not sure I could do this, but I like the idea.

My girlfriend will love this. She's coming from android and she always had the center screen clear because she puts a photo there. Thanks for the tip.

Apple needs to change the paradigm of the home screen, starting with having icons "float" to the top.

U mean the task bar up top? I like it in the bottom. I do wish we have the flexibility to place the icons wherever. Not get dragged to upper left.

No, I meant that app icons "float" to the top in the home screen rather than allow you to arrange them. So if you have four app icons, they float to the top row rather than let me position them lower in the screen.

Because Apple used to make little phones, and they decided for everyone that they would arrange the icons as they saw fit. They need to change that paradigm. They should let users choose where they want to put the icon on the screen, even if it means leaving a blank space on top (sacrilege!)

Yes but instead of tapping twice u just tap once haha. Besides the wallpaper looks awesome

The folder only shows so many apps so you still have to swipe to get to the other pages after tapping it once.

I moved my most frequently used apps (after the dock) to the bottom half to make reachability easier.

Your solution looks nice though if you desire a clean home screen.

well the folder contains 6 apps on the home screen. so place your common apps on the folder home.

this thread is hilarious. I think this years release produced the funniest threads. The past releases were boring...
