Quick Tips: Manage your iPhone Desktop

1:12 /

Moving iPhone icons is just a jiggle away.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hey, I'm Tom Merritt from CNET.com. Here's a quick tip for managing your iPhone desktop if you have the firmware version 1.1.3 for your iPhone. You can rearrange the icons, drag them around even make something called multiple pages. We'll show you what that means. Here's how you do it. First press down on an icon and hold until all the icons start jiggling around, ain't that cute? Now, you can delete a previous icon just by touching that little "x" up in the upper left corner. That's only available on the ones you've created. Move the icons around to whatever place you want, whatever order you like, kind of reminds me of those tile puzzles I had when I was a kid. I'm gonna arrange mine by color. And you can also move tiles to another page. Here's what we're talking about. Press down and slide an icon all the way to the right. The screen will then move to the right, you've got a new page there. To get the icons to stop jiggling, press the square button down here at the bottom. Now, swipe your finger to move back and forth between the screens and in case I don't fear looking at stocks one day. That stock icon isn't gone, it's just over on the other page. Hope that helps you keep a tidy phone. I'm Tom Merritt for CNET.com. ^M00:01:09 [ Music ]
