How to Make a Square with Multiple Apps on an iPhone 7

Organizing the apps on your iPhone can eventually become a necessity if you have multiple screens that you need to swipe through to find a particular game or utility.

Your iPhone places new apps in the first available space that it finds, which can make locating those apps rather tedious.

One way to resolve this problem is to create a square, or folder, that can contain a grouping of apps of your choosing.

You may have noticed that you already have at least one of these folders on your iPhone, which likely made you curious about creating additional ones.

Our guide below will show you how to combine apps into folders on an iPhone 7.

How to Combine Multiple Apps into One App Folder on an iPhone 7

The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus, in iOS 10.2. You can also create app folders on other iPhone models, in other versions of iOS, by using this same method.

Step 1: Locate the apps that you want to combine into a folder.
