When you group apps in folders, your iPhone or iPad will try to name those folders by their names. But what if you do not want to mark a folder? Here's how to delete it completely.
That sounds straightforward ̵
The simple option: move your folders to the Dock.
Items stored in the dock at the bottom of an iPhone or iPad are not present names. Moving a folder to the Dock continues this behavior – no name is displayed. When you tap the folder, the name reappears so it does not disappear but just fades out. This is a pretty obvious option, but it does not completely solve the problem. Your folder still has a name. If you are generally only against folder names, read on.
The slightly more complicated option: Use Unicode and Braille
While putting your folder in the dock is by far the easiest option does not want to put all folders in the dock. If you're looking for a way to show an empty folder on your home screen, there is a solution: Use the Unicode character for a braille character as the folder name. iOS does not recognize the Braille space as an actual space – it only sees it as a normal character – and does not replace the empty space with the folder name.
First, copy the following character to your iPhone or iPad by long pressing in the parentheses and then choosing "Copy": [⠀]. From there, return to the Home screen and long press on the folder until the icons begin to wobble.
Tap Open the folder and tap the "X" to delete the name.
Double-tap the name field and then tap "Paste." to insert the space. Tap Done to save the new, blank name.
Done! From then on, you can simply copy this blank character from the existing folder name and paste it into other folder names. Before you know it, you have countless nameless folders on your home screens. What could be better?
