iOS offers numerous ways to arrange the apps icons on iPad Home screen, some of them are very handy. First is docking. On-screen dock may hold at the bottom those icons that are the same on all desktops of the Apple tablet. So it is very convenient to have all valuable apps right at hand no matter at what desktop you are at the moment. But what is the maximum number of apps that can be docked at the bottom of the iPad screen? Do you still think about publicly claimed number of 5 – 6 apps. Forget about such low number. We will share with you a real trick - how to place as many as 120 apps atop on-screen dock of iPad / iPad 2 / iPad 3 and new iPad 4 / iPad mini. Here it is, laid out in its precise form:
You can place up to 6 folders onto iOS tablet on-screen dock. Each folder may keep up to 20 apps. Finally you may end with 120 apps on single desk. Just to evidence this we changed apps originally docked on iPad 3 replacing them with 4 folders holding 57 various apps.
Nothing can prevent you from putting onto iPad’s screen-dock up 120 apps if you group them evenly into six folders and then dock these folders. We can tell you even more: you can also dock almost empty folders and then, if needed, add apps into them until total number of apps in separate folder will not exceed twenty.
If you have a huge amount of apps (or for any other reason) you can rearrange their icons (including those ones for folders) between different iPad's home desktops. To do this:
Sometimes the icon you want to move may look very stupid: when you try to drag it to another page it just shifts back to its previous position. In this case, to fool stubborn icon, dock it first then change the screen and move from the dock.
