Confession time: I almost never leave the first page of my iPhone's home screen. No, my iPhone is not super organized and, no, I do not limit the number of apps that I download (believe me, this phone is a mess). The truth is that you don't have to rely on the home screen pages of your iPhone to find and open an app. In most cases, there is just a much faster way.
The secret? Just swipe down on the home screen. That gesture activates Search, an underrated but super powerful iOS tool. Here you can search and launch any app on your iPhone, regardless of which home screen page it is on or how deep it is in a folder. You can even find the app you're looking for via Siri suggestions under the search bar, where you'll find four apps by default, but by clicking & # 39; Show more & # 39; tapping, the number is expanded to eight.
One of my favorite peculiarities of this feature is that Quick Action menu & # 39; s still work on both apps you are looking for and apps in Siri Suggestions. That means you can use 3D Touch or Haptic Touch to access the Story camera on Instagram or launch a new tweet on Twitter without ever knowing where those apps are.
