How to hide app pages in iOS 14

  • Make a long press on a blank area of ​​the device home screen, or on any application page (you can also press and hold an application and hold it or choose “Edit home screen”)
  • When in edit mode, tap the app’s elongated page dots icon at the bottom-middle of the screen
  • Uncheck the application pages that you want to hide
  • Tap Done in the upper right corner. You can unhide the pages of your application at any time by doing these steps in reverse

Once you’ve hidden the app pages, you’ll see an alert that new downloads will appear in the Recent Added section of the App Library. For now, the default is for new app downloads to appear on your home screen / app page as well, but you can change this in the Settings app.
