Before the latest iTunes you could plug in your iPhone and reorder all the various pages of the Home screens on your iPhone at will (not just rearrange the apps). This option appears to be gone now. Is there any way to reorder Home screen on the iPhone now?

If you hold an app to go into wiggle mode, while still holding it you can tap other apps with your other hand to stack them together to move mass apps at once.

This is definitely not a feature... not in iOS 10, anyway. Was this added in iOS 11?

I wish you could save profiles of your home screen layout to iCloud. I like setting up new iOS devices as new, to prevent weirdness, BUT would like to be able to import that independently.

Unless I'm misunderstanding how you trigger it, it doesn't work on the iPhone SE.

Thanks for posting the link to the iTunes article.

If you decide to use the new version of iTunes that has apps feature restored, be sure to read the article at the link posted above. I thought it was a great idea until I read that you'll have to rebuild your iTunes Library afterward. Not sure I want to go to any more trouble. (I just finished wrestling with the split-2014 Camera Roll glitch.)

That's NOT a new version, is it? That's just that they've put back up links to the old version, right?

It's missing anything that will prompt you to upgrade iTunes when a new version is available. Any upgrade of iTunes will have to be initiated manually, if I understand the article correctly. FWIW, my download folder shows version 12.6 and then straight to version 12.7.

12.7.1 is out as of last night. Contains a bunch of security fixes. Installed that before using it to install iOS 11.1 on my iOS things which also came out yesterday.
