How to Organize You iPhone Dock

The iPhone's dock (some people refer to it as the menu bar or the Home screen bottom bar) provides a means to access your most frequently used apps from any of your Home Screens. While Apple's default choice of apps in the dock may be just fine for you, if you ever want to change apps on the iPhone dock then you can move the app icons to meet your needs.

You will have to remove an app from the dock before you can add a new app icon to the dock. To rearrange the apps on the iPhone dock, just tap and hold on any app icon in the iPhone dock until the icon begins to shake. Then drag the app icon you want to move from the dock onto the Home Screen. This leaves three icons on the Dock.

Repeat this for any other app icons you wish to change. When done, tap the Home button to exit the Home Screen editing mode.
