This Apple mobile device home screen app life hack video has exploded on TikTok – and for very good reason.

Every once in a while, you'll stumble upon a life hack video on TikTok that will quite literally change your life. It will make day-to-day activities that much easier, whether it's a way to cleverly package opened cereal boxes or a super quick way to peel your veggies. But, sometimes there is a hidden gem of a life hack for the tech world, and this one is for the Apple iPhone and iPad users.

The latest Apple mobile device life hack to go viral on TikTok shows a user on an iPad's home screen, and shows the fastest way to move apps from one screen to another.

Rearranging your home screen is quite a time-consuming process, especially if you have a large number of apps. Usually, what you'd do is hold down on an app until it starts to shake, which indicates it's ready to be relocated. Once you drag and drop your app to its new location, you will then repeat that process for all the other apps until you're done. But that's clearly the long way round!

In this viral TikTok life hack video, you see the user hold down on one app and keep holding it down. Then, with your other finger, just tap on all the other apps you want to move. Next, simply move the app you're still holding and drop it into its new location, all the other apps you have selected will relocate too! Saving you so much time!

Feel dumb that you didn't know this before? Well, you're not alone!
