Rename Folders On iPhone Faster Using 3D Touch

You probably know already that you can organize your apps in folders to have a better overview on your Home Screen. Then you also know that you can give your folders names that describe the content better than the suggested name. These names can be changed later on. Since iOS 10, there is another – much faster – way to do this, thanks to 3D Touch

Prerequisites

First, you need an iPhone, which runs under iOS 10 or later. The shortcut that we are going to use is not included in earlier versions.

In addition, you will need a 3D Touch capable iPhone – so an iPhone 6s and later, because this trick uses the Quick Action menu that is only available on later iPhone models.

Rename folders on iPhone faster

Go to the Home Screen of your iPhone to rename a folder as quick as a lightning. Press and hold one folder, which you want to rename.

The Quick Action menu will open, where you choose Rename.

The current name of the folder will be highlighted and overwritten as soon as you start entering the new name. Confirm the renaming by clicking Done at the bottom right of the keyboard.

Rename folders without 3D Touch

All people, who cannot use this fast way because they don’t have 3D Touch or don’t want to use it, can use this way:

Tap a folder to open it.

Click and hold one of the apps inside the folder until the icons are shaking.

Now tap the field with the name. Remove the name and enter the new name. Confirm the renaming by clicking Done at the bottom right of the keyboard.
