Many iPhone users opt to customize home screens according to their preferences.

In fact, some of the Home screen items aren’t necessary while some essential items aren’t present. 

To address this matter, Apple ensures that new iOS devices must have an option to customize Home screens to grant every user the interface they wanted. 

With the iOS 15 interface, users can easily rearrange the order of the Home screen pages, app icons, thumbnails and widgets.

And should things go wrong after restructuring the Home screens, there’s always an accessible reset button to tap on. And that’s when resetting the Home screen layout comes into play.

Will this reset delete apps and user data?

As the name implies, this reset only deletes and restores the iPhone Home screens and so everything else remains as is.

However, shortcut icons and controls that you’ve recently added on the Home screen and widgets will be removed. What you’ll get as a final output is the iPhone 13 home screen layout that looks like the first time it appears from the first bootup.
