Galaxy S8 Tip: Follow these steps to remove the dedicated app drawer for an iPhone-like experience

The newly released Galaxy S8 and S8+ come with a newer user interface that the company now calls Samsung Experience 8.0. It offers plenty of customization options to users, including various layouts, icon grid settings, theme packs, icon packs, and more.

The new app drawer can be accessed by swiping up or down on the home screen as the dedicated app drawer icon isn’t present in the pre-configured layout. However, if you want all your app icons on the home screen, à la iPhone, you can do that as well.

So, here’s how you can place all the app icons on the home screen and remove the dedicated app drawer on your Galaxy S8 and S8+:

Step 1: Long press an empty space on your Galaxy S8 or S8+’s home screen and then click on Home Screen Settings.
