Apple, after releasing the third iteration of its iOS 14 developer beta, rolled out the general public beta for the general public beta testers. Now, a Redditor has discovered a bug within the newest replace that hides all of the app pages on the iPhone, leaving you with simply the dock, the legacy widget web page, and the brand new “App Library”.
How To Get an App-Free Home Screen On Your iPhone
Now, I attempted this on my iPhone X (working iOS 14 public beta 3) and it actually works. So, to do that comply with the steps under:
- First, faucet and maintain any app on your property display to go into the “Jiggle Mode”.
- Then faucet the underside bar with the dots, that characterize the variety of pages, to enter the “Edit Pages” display.
- Now, right here you can see that though you possibly can untick the pages, you can not untick the final web page. This means, by default, it’s important to hold a minimum of one app web page as your property display.
- However, because the Redditor exhibits, when you’re left with the final to ticked pages, as an alternative of unticking simply certainly one of them at a time, it’s important to faucet the checkboxes of each the pages concurrently.
- As quickly as you do that, your machine would possibly respring by exhibiting the boot loop emblem (mine did). However, after a couple of seconds, it can come again to regular.
- So now, you will have a clear and app-free residence display in your iPhone.
There Are Consequences…And a Fix
Now, the Redditor, u/Robinhoed123 shared the video (under) on the r/ios subreddit exhibiting the bug in motion. However, on the finish of the video, he additionally says that after you disable all of the app pages, once you attempt to go to the “Edit Pages” display from the “Jiggle Mode”, the machine resprings each time.
However, aside from references to the hilarious WWDC music, there’s a repair for this difficulty within the feedback part of the submit.
It is shared by the identical man who discovered the bug within the first place and in accordance with him, to repair the problem, it’s important to once more go to “Jiggle Mode” and simply add a widget from the “Widget Gallery” to the clean residence display.
Now, once you enter the “Edit Pages” display, it can open up simply positive and present all the prevailing app pages. You can then simply begin ticking the checkboxes to revive the pages as they had been.
Now, I do know that this can be a bug and Apple will certainly repair it within the upcoming betas. However, after looking on the clear, minimalistic, and app-free residence display on my iPhone X, I’m kinda hoping that the builders let this bug stay within the OS in peace. Or even higher in the event that they allow us to formally disable all of the app pages from the “Edit Pages” display.
