When you create a folder on an iPhone or iPad, Apple automatically assigns a name to it. Since these names do not always match, you will probably want to change them. Here's how you can rename folders on your devices.
Create a folder
Although Apple allows you to manage your applications by moving them to various home screens, folders greatly facilitate the organization of dozens of applications on your device. Let's create a folder before renaming it.
First, press and hold any application until it starts to shake and an "X" appears above the icon .
Then drag the application to the top of another application. After maintaining it for a few seconds, a new file should appear with both apps inside.
Finally, on the iPhone X and the iPad Pro 2018 and later, click "Done" to save the changes. For older devices, press the Home button.
Rename a folder by pressing long on its name
The easiest way to rename folders on iOS and iPadOS is from there. To begin, open the folder you want to rename.
Then, hold the folder name down for several seconds. You can let go once applications start to shake and an "X" appears next to the folder name.
You can now type in the text box containing the folder name and type a new name.
To save the changes, on the iPhone X and the iPad Pro 2018 and later, tap outside the folder, and then click "Done." For older devices, press the Home button.
Rename a folder using 3D Touch or Haptic Touch
To start, press firmly or long on a folder.
After a second or two, a menu should appear. Select "Rename".
You can now type a new folder name by typing in the text box.
Again, on the iPhone X and the iPad Pro 2018 and later, click "Done" to save the changes. For older devices, press the Home button.
Creating folders on iPhone and iPad is as simple as that. The steps may seem complicated, but it's a simple process to replicate.
