Some of you really hate clutter (you鈥檙e called minimalists), and hate the sight of unused things clogging up perfectly good real estate. That dislike probably extends to your iPhone screen 鈥 why oh why does Apple feel the need to pre-load every phone with a bunch of apps you don鈥檛 even need (Stocks? and the Apple Watch app for non-Apple Watch owners? C鈥檓on!)? You may not be able to permanently delete these apps just yet (Tim Cook says they鈥檙e working on it, but鈥 it鈥檚 complicated), but there is a glitch in the current iOS 9 update that allows you to banish these pesky, never-used apps from sight by taking advantage of the lag on the 鈥淩educe Motion鈥 option on your iPhone. And that鈥檚 at least something.

What 鈥淩educe Motion鈥 does is take away some of the extra movement on your screen called the parallax effect. The parallax effect was implemented in 2013 to give your screen a little more feeling of depth, but for some it鈥檚 either annoying or causes motion sickness. Turning on 鈥淩educe Motion,鈥 however, has a side effect that Apple hasn鈥檛 caught yet (well, actually they have. In the iOS 9.1 beta, it seems like they might have closed up this glitch, so take advantage now).


First, go to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn on 鈥淩educe Motion.鈥


Next, create a folder of all the apps you don鈥檛 want on your screen. I have labeled mine 鈥淎pple Junk.鈥


In the meantime, also create a folder where you want this hidden folder to go. I chose to put it inside my 鈥淎pple鈥 folder, alongside the apps I actually DO use, like App Store.


Now watch closely. You want to hold down your 鈥淎pple鈥 folder until it starts to wiggle. Then, quickly, you want to tap into and tap out of the folder repeatedly. Keep the 鈥淎pple Junk鈥 folder close by for an easy transition.


As you鈥檙e tapping out of your 鈥淎pple鈥 folder, you want to immediately hold down the 鈥淎pple Junk鈥 folder to get it ready to move. While the lag is happening, you move the 鈥淎pple Junk鈥 folder right into the 鈥淎pple鈥 folder. Voil脿! A folder in a folder.


Press the Home button and you鈥檒l find that the 鈥淎pple Junk鈥 folder has been completely hidden from sight.
