Getting Started

This chapter focuses on how you can change the way your iPhone looks and is organized. You learn how to customize your iPhone in two major groups of tasks:

  • Home screens—The iPhone’s Home screens are the starting point for most everything you do because these screens contain the icons that you tap to access the apps that you want to use. You see and use the Home screens constantly, so it’s a good idea to customize them to your preferences. You can place icons on specific screens, and you can use folders to make your Home screens work better for you.
