How to Show Only Wallpaper on iPhone by Removing Home Screen Pages and App Icons in iOS 17.1.2/14

🗓️ November 10, 2020 By ✍️ Jaysukh patelBeing an iPhone geek, often I feel jealous of Android features, and wondering all the time why Apple wouldn’t add this, add that, in iPhone. One of the best things about using Apple gadgets is whether it is Mac or iPhone or iPad, we have all the abilities and inbuilt options to keep them as organized as possible. Not to mention, but the iOS 14’s App Library is one great example of it. Unfortunately, from the very first iPhone, Apple didn’t make much of a change in the home screen, all the applications, and widgets swoop on the home screen. Unlike iPhone, iPad; Android phones have an App Drawer that stores all the applications, whilst keeping the home screen neat.

I’m not saying that you cannot show wallpaper, it’s fairly easy to do, but a tedious process. You have to drag and drop each app to another App Page, to show only wallpaper on the iPhone. I guess, most of us have more than 100 applications installed, shifting them one by one is a deadly job or else, you have to accommodate the applications to the last App Page, in that way, only applications of one app page needs to be transferred to the end.
