Apple is constantly looking for new ways to improve user experience on their products. With iOS 14, Apple introduced a new way to help reduce Home screen clutter. In this article, I’ll explain what the App Library is on an iPhone and show you how to use it!

What Is The App Library On An iPhone?

The App Library houses all the apps installed on your iPhone, giving you the option to remove certain apps from the Home screen. Before App Library, every app installed on your iPhone appeared on the Home screen, which could lead to a lot of clutter.

The App Library is organized into specific folders such as Social, Utilities, and Recently Added. You can quickly find any app in the App Library using the Search bar.
