At the bottom of your iPhone or iPad screen are a series of icons that appear on every screen you switch to. This is consider the dock and can be used to hold your most used applications so that they are easily accessible from every screen. There is a limitation, though, as to how many icons you can dock at the bottom of the screen without using special apps. For the iPad you can dock 6 icons, while for the iPhone and iTouch you can dock 4 icons. This guide will explain how to remove and add icons to the dock so that they are accessible from every screen you are viewing.
Method 1: How to add an app to your dock through the iPad or iPhone
In order to move icons to your dock you need to press and hold an icon until all of the icons start to shake. Once you are in this mode, you can simply drag the icon to the dock at the bottom of the screen and let go.
Then press the Home button to stop your icons from shaking.
To remove an icon from the dock works the same way. Simply press and hold the icon and drag it out of the dock back onto your screen.
Method 1: How to add an app to your dock through iTunes
You can also add icons to your dock through iTunes. Simply start iTunes and under the Devices category, click on your device name. You should now be at your summary screen. Now click on the Apps tab so that you see your list of apps as shown in the image below.
To add an icon to the dock, click on the screen where the icon you want is located and then drag it to the position on the dock that you want it. To remove an icon from the dock just drag it off the dock to somewhere else on the screen. When done making changes, click on the Apply button. The next time you sync your iPad, iTouch, or iPhone the changes will appear on your device.
