TikTok users blown away by man’s ‘incredible’ iPhone organizing hack

A new TikTok hack is showing users how to move apps on an iPhone much faster than the “traditional” way.

The life hack comes courtesy of user Kevin Francis, who’s drawn more than 1.5 million views on his video demoing the trick.

“You learn something new everyday,” Francis captioned his clip.

In the clip, Francis shows just how easily iPhone users can use the hack to reorganize their home screens. He starts his video by clicking and holding one app he wants to move. That, as any iPhone or iPad user knows, causes all apps on the home screen to wiggle — meaning they can be moved.

Francis then starts clicking several other apps on the same page, all while holding the first app. Then, he drags the first app over to another page — revealing that every app he clicked had gone with it.

The trick, in essence, gives users a way to move whole pages of apps on an iPhone at once. Naturally, many TikTok users were excited by that fact. Some called it “incredible,” “innovative” or a major “time-saver.”

“This is going to be so much easier,” one user wrote.

“Omg it works!” another added.

“Wait, this is real?” another wrote.

Others, of course, were quick to say they knew the feature existed. However, the good news with TikTok iPhone hacks is that they’re virtually endless. In the last few months alone, users have shared their tricks for playing music while recording videos, taking better vertical photos and recording “secret” conversations with AirPods.
