How to Move Apps to a Different Screen on an iPad

By KR Knowlin

With the iPad, you can activate additional home screens to accompany your growing app library. If your main home screen is nearing full, add another home page to the iPad to make room for more app icons. Moving apps to a different screen on your iPad can also help you organize icons so you can navigate applications more easily.

Step 1

Touch and hold an app icon on your main home screen. All of the icons on the screen will start to jiggle.

Step 2

Drag an app icon from its current location to the far right of the screen to activate an additional page. A blank screen appears.

Step 3

Lift your finger from the touch screen to drop the icon on the page.

Step 4

Press the "Home" button to set the new layout.
