How to Hide Applications on the iPhone

By Mario Calhoun

While many of the applications on the iPhone can be removed directly from the device, or when the device is connected to iTunes, the pre-loaded applications cannot be removed. The stocks, notes, weather, SMS and Safari applications are just a few of the pre-loaded applications that can't be removed. However, they can be hidden in an application category.

Things You'll Need

  • IOS 4.0 or later

Step 1

Press your finger against the application on the iPhone's screen. The application will wiggle when it is in editing mode.

Step 2

Drag the application to another application and release your finger from the screen.

Step 3

Tap the category's name field and create a name for the category. Touch "Done" and press "Home."
