Organising your home screen is a personal process, but sometimes you just can't figure out what works best for you. If you're having trouble figuring out what's really worth having on the main home screen, Finer Things in Tech recommends swiping through your iPhone's app switcher.
For the most part, we all know which apps we use all the time, but that doesn't mean we're inadvertently burying something we use every day. Finer Things in Tech explains:
At least some of the apps you see regularly in the first 1-3 collections of the app switcher are probably prime candidates for your first Home Screen. You may find that apps you previously buried in a folder on the last page are the ones you use most frequently, and moving them to your first Home Screen can save you some daily time and effort digging to find them.
It's a simple little audit you can do now and again to keep your home screen fresh. Combine that with the occasional app bankruptcy, and you'll only have what you need on your home screen all the time.
