The following blog post will have instructions on how to hide your App Folder names in the iOS device (iPhone and iPad).
All the Apps on iOS devices remain on the home screen. Similar to Android, iOS devices don’t have the app drawer. Due to this reason, the more application you install on your device, more clutter you’ve on the screen.
iOS offer screen pages feature using which you can create as much screen pages you want, but scrolling down to the list of those screens pages and keeping in mind which application icon is on which page. Now, this is another problem, isn’t it?
In this situation, folders are useful. Create a folder and give it a name. If you don’t want to give the folder a name, then you can also type emoji.
There might be users who prefer to do more than regular while organizing apps on the iPhone or iPad home screen; then a quick workaround will let you create a nameless folder on iOS.
Hiding the app folder name in the iOS devices is something which you can’t do with the default keyboard. The characters which going to play an essential role in the workaround can’t be obtained from the supported keyboard.
