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!

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 Supplemental Update with a couple of sleep-related fixes, including a bug that could cause external drives to be ejected after your Mac goes to sleep and a problem that prevented HDMI audio from working after wake from sleep. The supplemental update also fixes an issue that prevented some applications from accessing the FaceTime HD camera on mid-2013 MacBook Air models and a bug with USB Bluetooth adapters. It’s available as a direct download from Apple’s Support Downloads Web page or via the Mac App Store. (Free update, 18.7 MB)

Apple also appear to have re-released the 10.8.5 and 10.8.5 Combo updates to include this supplemental patch: the dates on the download page are later, and the download sizes have changed.
