Moving apps around with iOS 10.3.1 using VoiceOver

With iOS 10, a new way exists through the actions rotor on the home screen to move apps around your various home screens. While the old method is still available, the new way of accomplishing this task seems to be preferred by many. The below process was written for iOS version 10.3.1, and if the instructions do not follow this method, chances are good you are not running that version of iOS.

Moving Apps Around Screens

To move an app to a different location of your home screen, do the following:

  1. Locate the app you wish to move.
  2. Flick up or down to the “arrange App” option and double tap.
  3. Double tap again and VoiceOver will prompt: “choose a destination for” followed by the name of the app.
  4. Move to where you wish the app to be located. You can change pages if you like and this will not change the below instructions.
  5. Once you have arrived at where you would like to place the app, flick down with one finger. You can: cancel the move, create a new folder with the app that has VoiceOver focus, place the app before the current item, after the current item, or choose the default action which would bring up the ability to delete the app instead of moving it. Note that if VoiceOver is focused on a folder, an action rotor item for adding the app you are moving will appear. Accomplishing this task is detailed below in the next section. Double tap the option you wish to use, and the app will be placed accordingly.
  6. After placing the app you just moved, the app will show up where you moved it, with all other apps adjusting to accommodate this change. If you wish to move another app, locate it, and flick up or down once to the “move” option and proceed as indicated above.
  7. When you have finished moving things around, press the home button.

Folders

If you wish to place an app in a folder:

  1. Locate the app you wish to move.
  2. Flick up or down to the “arrange App” option and double tap.
  3. Double tap again and VoiceOver will prompt: “choose a destination for” followed by the name of the app.
  4. Move to the folder you wish the app to be sitting in. You can change pages if you like and this will not change the below instructions.
  5. Flick down twice to add the app to the chosen folder and then double tap.
  6. VoiceOver will then either say the app has been added to the folder, or it will indicate that focus is on the app. If VoiceOver reports that the app has been added to the folder, simply double tap the screen to enter the folder. If VoiceOver says You are still focused on the app, it’s lying. It is actually outside of the folder. If this second scenario is the case, Tap anywhere on the screen to regain focus and navigate to the folder you just moved the app to.
  7. The newly placed app in the folder will be placed on the first available icon. Flick down to the option to move the app. You can close the folder, which would let you move the app outside the folder, place it before the app that currently has focus, or place the app you are moving after the app currently in focus. Double tap on the option that best suits your needs.
  8. Press the home button when you are done moving apps to complete the process.

Moving apps out of folders.

  1. From within the folder, locate the app you wish to move outside that folder.
  2. Flick down to the “arrange app” option and double tap twice.
  3. Once it is outside the folder, proceed as indicated in the previous 2 sections as needed.

Note that once you double tap twice to move an app, you can also perform a 2 finger scrub to move out of the folder if you wish. Also note that pressing the Home button will not move you out of the folder, but will exit screen edit mode
