A new viral TikTok video shows a hidden iPhone and iPad feature, one that will make moving and organizing icons incredibly easy.
The video, uploaded by user kevin_benjis, allows users to simultaneously move multiple apps from one screen to the next. Since its publication, his video has already garnered over 1.5 million views. Not bad for someone with only 14 thousand followers.

This is how it works. Users can hold down an icon. It will start to twist, indicating that it can now be moved.
While holding down the first icon, users can then tap other icons with another finger. These icons are now attached to the first icon.
Once all the desired icons are gathered, users can easily drag to the screen of their choice and let go. All icons have now been moved.
Interestingly, this is not a new feature. It was unveiled during the iOS 11 beta back in 2017. We are currently on iOS 14, with the 14.5 public beta happening right now. But after a decade of iPhone software development, many handy features have gone through without the majority of users noticing.
For example, with the latest iPhone, there are 10 iPhone 12 features users should enable right away. This includes managing 5G data, fine-tuning Face ID, enabling picture-in-picture video and using Apple ProRAW for pictures.
And it’s not just iPhone 12 users who will catch up on all the new tricks. People who use older iPhones with iOS 14 have a wide range of tools to tinker with.
Who knows, gathering some of these tricks into a video can make your clip go viral on TikTok as well.
