Almost all Apple users have a folder on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch dedicated to storing apps they wish they could delete. Now this wish of theirs might come true with a secret trick that has been found in iOS 9.2, says a report from Forbes.
Make unwanted apps disappear
YouTube user videosdebarraquito found that iOS 9.2 comes with the ability to make unwanted apps disappear. He has detailed the steps in a video. The first step is to move the unwanted apps to a new folder that can have any name.
Next, the user will have to drag each of the unwanted apps as far right in the folder as possible. While the app is still held under the finger, a user will have to tap on the Home button, and that it. This leads to the magical disappearance of the app, and the procedure can be repeated for every app in the folder. After all the apps have disappeared, the user can exit the folder and it too will disappear, the report says.
This is not a permanent solution as the apps reappear on the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch upon restarting, the report says. Even if it’s temporary solution, it does raises a questions. Is Apple is secretly working on a similar feature or is it a glitch?
If Apple is seriously working on a similar feature, then the final version can be assumed to have a less complicated process. If it is a glitch, then from the huge interest it has generated, the company will definitely get an idea that users certainly need a way to get rid of unnecessary apps.
