Arrange Icons on the iPhone/iPod touch Home Screens

Unhappy with the arrangement of your icons? You can move them around as follows: First, hold down on any Home screen icon until all the icons wiggle. Now, drag the icons to their desired locations (drag left or right to get to other screens). Finally, press the physical Home button on your device. (Unlike earlier releases, iPhone Software 2.1 doesn't move just-updated apps to the end of your Home screens, so your icons should be more stationary once you've installed the update.)

Remember that you can replace Apple's default icons in the four persistent spots at the bottom of the screen with your four most-used apps!

Safari 5.0.4

Send Article to a Friend

Attention surfer girls (and boys): Apple has released Safari 5.0.4. The new version of the company’s Web browser contains numerous stability, compatibility, accessibility, and security improvements. Web pages with multiple instances of plug-in content, image reflections, and transition effects should all work better. An issue that caused some Web sites to print incorrectly is fixed, too. Also fixed are VoiceOver bugs and an issue where the screen saver could appear while watching video in the browser. Additionally, the update patches more than 50 security vulnerabilities. (Free, 37.65 MB for Snow Leopard, 46.83 MB for Leopard)
