    in iOS 10, i used to hide apps by moving them to a full screen, making a folder and then moving them down to the dock. the app used to remain hidden from sight till phone was restarted. but in iOS 11 this little trick doesn't work any more. any ideas how to hide certain apps from prying eyes and hands?

    Do you mean you made them vanish from the screen? Do you refer to stock apps? I know there was a trick to make stock apps disappear. Maybe it no longer works in iOS 11. Like nested folders, Apple is good about taking away little tricks we use.

    No idea. How do you use a hidden app? Why not stick them in a folder and put the folder way over on the last screen page?

    You can use the Spotlight Search to find the app to continue using it.

    How do you put a folder in the dock where it won't be seen? I have 2 in my dock, and they are clear as day. Am I missing something? I'm on iOS 10.1.1.

    Can you explain what you used to do that no longer works? You said you moved apps to a full screen, then created a folder and moved it to the dock. How does that hide anything? Am I missing something?
