    Hello - I had some apps that iOS "hid" because I had maxed out number the screens. I created folders and reduced the number of screens, but the apps that were hidden are still hidden. How do I reveal the apps?

    They are pushed past the last page, you can find them through Spotlight or rearranging them and put them in folders through iTunes.

    How many apps do you have? What's the limit for the screen?

    Are you saying that even though I've reduced the number of screens, they don't automatically reappear?

    They showed up after a restart. Kinda lame to have to do that.

    12 apps per page x 11 page max (I think) = 132 apps total.

    Start using folders. Or jailbreak your iPhone and get FolderEnhancer

    you have to start thinking of the iphone as a device closer to a computer then a telephone, when you normall computer is acting goofy you restart it and 9/10 it fixes your issues, same goes for an iphone these things need to be restarted once in a while, i restart mine daily

    It's 16 per page. So if it's 11 pages (I don't really know if that's true, but if it is) then you'll have 176 plus the 4 on the dock for a total of 180.

    x 12 apps per folder = 2,160 max apps.

    Dr. Q would be proud - or embarrass me with some better math.

    Yup a restart will fix the hidden apps. I had an issue where i had to reboot after an app froze and all my folders disappeared. It was horrible setting things back up.
