Unlike most Android devices with app drawers, iPhone users could not hide or get the unwanted app icons off their home screens until now. Thanks to YouTube user videosdebarraquito, iPhone users can now declutter their home screens.

The trick can be done on an iPhone or iPad running iOS 9 or later, and involves a few simple steps of dragging the app out of a folder, back into the center and tapping the home button. If you've seen the video below, it is not necessary to name the folder "Disappear" for the trick to work. The tricks not only works for preloaded apps, it also works for downloaded apps.

While the apps can no longer be found on the home screen, you still can access them via Spotlight Search. If you want to undo this trick, a simple restart (power off and on) of the device will do.
