The 5 Best Apps to Make Slideshow Presentations on Your iPhone

There are lots of high-quality iPhone apps to choose from if you need to make a slideshow presentation from your phone.

Back in the day, creating a slideshow presentation meant turning on the PC and opening PowerPoint. Now, with so many great apps out there, you can create an impressive presentation right from your iPhone. Whether you need a slideshow for school, work, or just personal use, you have plenty of options.

When you’re done, you can send your slideshow presentation to your PC or share it straight from your device. If you’re wanting to know how to create a slideshow presentation on your

iPhone, this list will show you all the best apps to try.

1. Microsoft PowerPoint

The most popular program for creating slideshows, Microsoft PowerPoint, has an official app for iPhone. Like the desktop version, you can create a new PowerPoint and edit each slide. Add your pictures, text, and transitions to make it your own. With all the same features that are available on a desktop, nobody will be able to tell you made it on your iPhone.

Microsoft PowerPoint syncs with OneDrive, so if you use Outlook for school or work you can find your PowerPoint in your OneDrive account. You can also share and edit your PowerPoint presentation on the go, and even add new collaborators.

Aside from OneDrive, Microsoft PowerPoint also syncs with Box, Dropbox, Edmodo, and more. With Microsoft PowerPoint, you get all the features you want in one app.

Download: Microsoft PowerPoint (Free, subscription required)

2. Google Slides

A popular alternative to Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Slides has many of the same features with a major difference. That is, Google Slides is totally free and doesn’t require any subscription. All you need is a free Google account to access Google Slides.

Google Slides also makes it easy to make a slideshow presentation on your iPhone. With great templates, plenty of effects, and easy editing, you can create something impressive in minutes.

Google Slides is also better for collaborating than Microsoft PowerPoint. The reason is that not everyone has Microsoft 360 or wants to pay for a subscription. Whereas most people have a Google account or can make one for free in under a minute. To collaborate with others, all you need to do is enter their email and they will get invited to edit the slideshow. Google Slides also syncs with your Google account, so you can access your slideshow on any device with access to Google.

For these reasons, Google Slides is a must-try if you’re looking to create a slideshow on your iPhone.

Download: Google Slides (Free)

Keynote is Apple’s presentation software, designed to compete with Microsoft PowerPoint. Keynote comes pre-installed on all iOS devices running the latest version iOS, so there’s a good chance you already have this app.

Like Microsoft PowerPoint and Google Slides, you can create a slideshow using a template and add your own text, images, and transitions. Keynote comes with 40 templates pre-installed, giving you plenty of options to choose something unique. Keynote also has some notable features that differentiate it from the competition. For example, there’s a feature called Instant Alpha that will remove the backgrounds from an image. You can also import live videos and photos to your slideshow.

Keynote is also the best slideshow app for rehearsing your presentation. Keynote has a built-in timer that shows you the time, presentation notes, and the slide on one page. You can rehearse your slides and see how long it takes to make sure you hit your time limit.

With all these features, Keynote is a great app to create your next slideshow. However, the collaboration feature isn’t as strong as Microsoft PowerPoint or Google Slides. So if you need several collaborators, one of the other options might work better.

Download: Keynote (Free)

Canva is one of the most popular graphic design apps in the App Store right now. With Canva, you can create flyers, brochures, and even logos. However, most people aren’t aware that Canva has a powerful Slideshow feature as well.

With many great slideshow templates available, you are sure to find something that stands out and will impress your audience. In fact, Canva has thousands of slideshow templates available—more than any other slideshow app. After you find your template, you can easily add your photos and text.

Since Canva has many customization features for photos, you can edit your images before importing them to your slideshow as well. Once your slideshow is completed, you can access it through the Canva website or save it to your device.

Canva is the best choice for a slideshow app if you don’t have any collaborators and want to make something truly unique. It works great for school projects, creative presentations, and showcasing your art or photographs.

Download: Canva (Free, in-app purchases available)

5. Adobe Spark Page

Adobe Spark Page is a beginner-friendly Adobe app that allows you to make impressive web pages, newsletters, and slideshows. Most Adobe apps like Photoshop or Premiere have a steep learning curve. For this reason, the name Adobe can scare off beginners. Thankfully, Adobe Spark Page is an exception.

With a simple-to-use interface and dozens of premium theme combinations, you can make a slideshow right from your iPhone. The slideshow presentations made with Adobe Spark Page are simple, professional, and look great on large screens. All creations made on Adobe Spark Page are available on your Adobe account so you can access your slideshows anywhere. You can also create a public access link and share it over text or email.

While lacking some features like collaboration, it’s still a great slideshow app that’s simple and easy to use on the go. As long as you don’t need collaborators, this app is a must-try.

'What is Keynote on iPhone?': How to use the Keynote app on your iPhone to make slideshow presentations on the go

  • Keynote is a presentation-creation app for your iPhone that can be used by students, professionals, and anyone who needs to make a slideshow.
  • The Keynote app comes preloaded on your iPhone , and can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store if you delete it.
  • Those familiar with Microsoft's PowerPoint program will quickly pick up on the value and the ease of using the iPhone's Keynote app.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories .

To Microsoft Word, you have Apple's Pages. To Microsoft's Excel, you have Apple's Numbers. And for PowerPoint, the Apple counterpart is Keynote, the presentation app that comes preloaded on your iPhone (and is free from the App Store if you deleted it).

Keynote is a presentation-design program perfect for everything from a report you're giving in school, to a proposal you want to share with your colleagues at the office. And once you spend some time with Keynote, you'll realize it's really not that hard to use.

Check out the products mentioned in this article:

Iphone 11 (from $699.99 at best buy), how to use keynote on your iphone.

To create a new Keynote project, open the Keynote app , which is a blue box with a white image of a lectern inside it.

Tap the "Create Presentation" icon — it's the plus (+) symbol in the top-right — then select the theme you wish to use. You can always use your own images in the slides, so don't be thrown off by the stock images.

Once inside the new project, double-tap in the various boxes on the first slide to add text or media. You can simply begin typing after double tapping, or hit the plus symbol at the top to add images, graphs, video, audio, drawings, and more.

To add a new slide, hit the plus symbol in a blue box at the bottom left corner of the screen. Slides can always be dragged into new order by tapping, holding, and moving them up or down in the pane on the left. 

To add transitions between your slides (and alter various other settings) tap the three little dots in a circle in the top-right corner and select "Transitions and Builds." Then tap the slide to which you want to add a transition, tap "Add Transition," and then make your selection.

Using Keynote can be a collaborative process; just hit the "Add People" button at the top of the screen (it looks like a silhouette of a stick figure's head and shoulders in a circle), and invite others to work with you.

Once you're happy with your Keynote presentation, it's time to export it. Tap those three dots at the top-right and select "Export." You can then choose the type of file you'd like to create, which can then be shared with others, saved to your phone, sent to Google Drive, and so on.

How to make a slideshow on an iphone.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy watching your favorite photos and videos!

Quick Links

Create a slideshow for your photos and videos on iphone.

Thanks to the iPhone's built-in Photos app , you can make a slideshow and have your photos and videos play one after another without manual interaction. You can choose a custom background music track, theme, and even the speed of the slideshow.

The Photos app only lets you play your content as a slideshow; you can't save these slideshows to play at a later time on another device. However, as a workaround, you could record a video of your iPhone's screen while it plays and save it, or stream it to your Apple TV using AirPlay .

Related: How to Edit Photos on Your iPhone (Using the Photos App)

To start making your multimedia slideshow , launch the Photos app on your iPhone .

In the Photos app, select the photos and videos you'd like to include in your slideshow.

When you've selected your photos and videos, in the bottom-left corner of your screen, tap the share icon.

In the share menu, tap "Slideshow."

Your iPhone will automatically create and play a slideshow containing your photos and videos.

To customize this slideshow, then tap on the slideshow and then select "Options" in the bottom-right corner.

On the "Slideshow Options" page, choose the item you'd like to change for your slideshow. Your options are:

  • Theme : Use this option to change your slideshow's theme.
  • Music : Change your slideshow's background music with this option. You can load music from the Music app as well.
  • Repeat : To play your slideshow in a loop, enable this option.
  • Slider : Use this slider to change your slideshow's playback speed. Dragging the slider to the left decreases the speed, while dragging it to the right increases the speed.

When you've specified custom options, save your settings by tapping "Done" in the top-right corner.

And that's it. Enjoy the customized slideshow of your favorite photos and videos!

Another way to make a slideshow on your iPhone or other devices is to use Google Photos.

Can you use PowerPoint on an iPhone?

Using PowerPoint on the iPhone

So you’ve bought your iPhone and played with all the little functions, gasped at the brilliant iTunes interface and browsed your favourite sites on the Internet, and you’re starting to realise that this iPhone is a really great piece of technology. But what else can it do for you? Well, as the iPhone is in fact really a mini computer, it can be used as an excellent little portable presentation machine.

So how do you get your PowerPoint presentation onto the iPhone?

You can’t actually run your PPT files directly but you can convert your PPTs to an appropriate format such as MP4, a common video format for various mobile devices including the iPhone.

There are converters available around the web, such as PPTMovie.

When you convert the PPT to a movie suitable for the iPhone you’ll need to resize it for the screen which is 480x320px, you’ll also need to choose a compression setting to get optimum file size as storage on an iPhone is limited. Remember though, that higher compression will not only reduce file size but also quality, so choose with care.

You’ll also have other options to choose from, such as how to control the movie, as well as various audio settings. Another option is IVTStudio software. This software “enables users to publish and share video podcasts which alternate video clips with full-screen PowerPoint slides.”

Displaying your iPhone presentation

So your presentation is on your iPhone, which is great for close viewing, for one-to-one presentations and for practising while commuting, but as well as viewing it on the iPhone itself you can hook it up to a TV, monitor or projector. You just connect the appropriate Audio/Video connectors into the iPhone base dock. Exactly which cables you’ll need will depend on your playback equipment, but there are already many available.

There are a serial of ppt converter just like ppt-to-wmv, ppt-to-avi, ppt-to-mp4. if you want to play your presentation on ipod, try to find them on google,yahoo.

“You can’t actually run your PPT files directly”

How? We need to run NATIVE PowerPoint and Keynote files to use the iPhone as the ultimate wired and wireless presentation remote. Is that possible?

Is it possible to convert PPTs for use on iPhone and for presenting or projecting on a projector. This is a key feature i need and used to have with my windows mobile device that could not only look at PPTs but then with a cable connect to a projector and project the higher quality version onto a projector.

To get your PowerPoint to iPhone. Convert the PowerPoint to a proper format first,

probably the most convenient way of using ppt on iphone is actually converting it to pdf first – for example import ppt to google dosc and save as pdf, or print with pdf printer

This is a great idea.

We need full blown presentations with transitions animations, etc. And we need to control them back and forward like a native presentation, not a movie stream or a collection of static slides. Something like this, but for the iPhone or iPod touch (because even the MacBook Air is too heavy and large for us):

Is that possible? We need thousands for our University. Thanks.

How do i Show my Powerpoint in phone through a tv?

So, is it possible to use an iphone and project my slides (ppt) in a projector? Thanks, Celso

Try E-Mailing ur PowerPoint to your own e-mail adress and open it on your phone’s mail app. (It’s not great)

I am a little confused. Please help me out. I can view PPT files on my iPhone. Since I can do that I also believe that I can get whatever is on the iPhone screen on the iPhone video output using the right cable, which I think allows this the PPT to be seen on a TV. Am I missing something ?

I want to project an IPhone app to an Interactive Whiteboard. I bought the VGA cable to connect the phone to the projector, but the projector says that it doesn’t recognize the device. Any advice?

Ooops! I mispoke, I didn’t buy a VGA cable, I bought a RCA adapter cable.

I recently installed ppt on my iphone, if a file has over 100 pages how do I jump to page 80 from page 1??

Ok, so this article solves 1 piece of the puzzle for me. Does anyone know if this app allows video out so I can feed the video to my projector? I recently purchased an Aaxatech M1 Plus with their iPod cable, needs video out with app to work I suppose.

Thanks but I want to know if you can create power points on your iPod or iPhone

I am a 2nd grade teacher. There are so many amazing apps that would be great to do together as a class. For example, our preschool teachers have a alphebet app where the the kids follow the train to make the letter strokes. Many preschool kids struggle with fine motor skills. We were wanting to project this app onto our interactive white board so the kids can use their whole hand to trace rather than just their finger. I know we can take a screen shot but then where they traced won’t show up and the train won’t move to show them the order of the strokes. Apple doesn’t have any products to support this but if anyone knows of a way we are begging!!! Thanks!

I always use Moyea PPT to Video Convert to convert my presentations to MP4 and play it on iPhone.

I have a great space walk app on my iphone which I would love to project onto my interactive whiteboard for the kids in my class. How can I do this?

Kind Regards

In order for the iPhone to send anything out, you’ll need to use the Keynote app which can execute PPT files. I have that connected to my AAXA M1 Ultimate and it works like a dream.

google drive can help with this you dont have to resize or format your screen just download from app store and sighn in and you can present you power point but cant edit only zoom..

can present anything on iphone with google drive

I just checked this with the iPhone PowerPoint app and the iPhone Office app that includes PowerPoint.

In both of them, the icon that looks like a right-pointing triangle starts the screenshow, where it initially shows a few tools at the top of the screen (assuming you're holding the device horizontally), but they either disappear on their own or go away when you tap or swipe up.

Thanks Steve. You're right, the toolbar does go away in presentation mode when it's horizontal. Sorry, I should've mentioned my slides are portrait/vertically oriented! Which, unless I'm missing something, means that 40% of the screen is given up to notes and thumbnails in presentation mode....

iOS includes a screen rotation lock option. Try starting the presentation horizontally, then lock the screen and see if you can turn the iPhone to make the presentation readable. On some models, you can set the side switch to do the locking.

Hi John, thanks for the suggestion. With iPhone8/iOS 14.3 the screen lock option from swiping up the control center seems to be to lock portrait mode. So if I start ppt in landscape, select screen lock, then pivot to portrait I still get portrait mode in ppt, with the 40% screen loss.

I can see that a presentation mode that shows notes and thumbnails on the phone - a remote control effectively - would be great in many situations. Unfortunately, not for the use case I have in mind. Thanks everyone for your help, I'll stick with Google Slides as that seems to be the best fit for this use case.

Hi djowhite,

Thanks for using Microsoft products and posting in the community, I'm glad to offer help.

According to your description, I created a presentation with two portrait slides and opened it on iPhone, as you can see, the toolbar/notes will be hidden only in landscape mode. However, in portrait mode, even if I started the show, the toolbar/notes will always display on the screen, and there is no such an option could hide them.

Landscape mode:

Portrait mode:

We are sorry for the inconvenience to your work, in this case, I'd like to suggest you send feedback to Office to share your ideas, it would be helpful for Microsoft to improve the products, your understanding and contribution will be highly appreciated.

U.S. Sues Apple, Accusing It of Maintaining an iPhone Monopoly

The lawsuit caps years of regulatory scrutiny of Apple’s wildly popular suite of devices and services, which have fueled its growth into a nearly $3 trillion public company.

Garland Accuses Apple of Violating Federal Antitrust Law

Attorney general merrick b. garland said that apple has employed a strategy that relies on exclusionary anti-competitive conduct that hurts both consumers and developers..

Over the last two decades, Apple has become one of the most valuable public companies in the world. Today, its net income exceeds the individual gross domestic product of more than 100 countries. That is in large part due to the success of the iPhone, Apple’s signature smartphone product. But as our complaint alleges, Apple has maintained monopoly power in the smartphone market, not simply by staying ahead of the competition on the merits, but by violating federal antitrust law. Consumers should not have to pay higher prices because companies break the law. We allege that Apple has employed a strategy that relies on exclusionary, anticompetitive conduct that hurts both consumers and developers. For consumers, that has meant fewer choices, higher prices and fees, lower quality smartphones, apps and accessories, and less innovation from Apple and its competitors. For developers, that has meant being forced to play by rules that insulate Apple from competition. And as outlined in our complaint, we allege that Apple has consolidated its monopoly power, not by making its own products better, but by making other products worse.

By David McCabe and Tripp Mickle

David McCabe reported from Washington, and Tripp Mickle from San Francisco.

The federal government’s aggressive crackdown on Big Tech expanded on Thursday to include an antitrust lawsuit by the Justice Department against Apple, one of the world’s best-known and most valuable companies.

The department joined 16 states and the District of Columbia to file a significant challenge to the reach and influence of Apple, arguing in an 88-page lawsuit that the company had violated antitrust laws with practices that were intended to keep customers reliant on their iPhones and less likely to switch to a competing device. The tech giant prevented other companies from offering applications that compete with Apple products like its digital wallet, which could diminish the value of the iPhone, and hurts consumers and smaller companies that compete with it, the government said.

The Justice Department’s lawsuit is seeking to put an end to those practices. The government even has the right to ask for a breakup of the Silicon Valley icon.

Thumbnail of page 1

Read the Lawsuit Against Apple

The antitrust suit is the federal government’s most significant challenge to the reach and influence of the company.

The lawsuit caps years of regulatory scrutiny of Apple’s wildly popular suite of devices and services, which have fueled its growth into a nearly $2.75 trillion public company that was for years the most valuable on the planet. It takes direct aim at the iPhone, Apple’s most popular device and most powerful business, and attacks the way the company has turned the billions of smartphones it has sold since 2007 into the centerpiece of its empire.

By tightly controlling the user experience on iPhones and other devices, Apple has created what critics call an uneven playing field, where it grants its own products and services access to core features that it denies rivals. Over the years, it has limited finance companies’ access to the phone’s payment chip and Bluetooth trackers from tapping into its location-service feature. It’s also easier for users to connect Apple products, like smartwatches and laptops, to the iPhone than to those made by other manufacturers.

“Each step in Apple’s course of conduct built and reinforced the moat around its smartphone monopoly,” the government said in the lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. It added that the company’s practices resulted in “higher prices and less innovation.”

Apple says these practices make its iPhones more secure than other smartphones. But app developers and rival device makers say Apple uses its power to crush competition.

“This lawsuit threatens who we are and the principles that set Apple products apart in fiercely competitive markets,” an Apple spokeswoman said. “If successful, it would hinder our ability to create the kind of technology people expect from Apple — where hardware, software, and services intersect. It would also set a dangerous precedent, empowering government to take a heavy hand in designing people’s technology.”

Apple is the latest company the federal government has tried to rein in under a wave of antitrust pressure in recent years from both the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission, to which the Biden administration has appointed heads sharply focused on changing the laws to fit the modern era. Google, Meta and Amazon are all facing similar suits, and companies from Kroger to JetBlue Airways have faced greater scrutiny of potential acquisitions and expansion.

The lawsuit asks the court to stop Apple from engaging in current practices, including blocking cloud-streaming apps, undermining messaging across smartphone operating systems and preventing the creation of digital wallet alternatives.

The Justice Department has the right under the law to ask for structural changes to Apple’s business — including a breakup, said an agency official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The official declined to identify what additional action the agency could request in this case but any demands would be tied to how a court rules on the question of whether — and how — Apple broke the law.

It’s unclear what implications the suit — which is likely to drag out years before any type of resolution — would have for consumers. Apple plans to file a motion to dismiss the case in the next 60 days. In its filing, the company plans to emphasize that competition laws permit it to adopt policies or designs that its competitors oppose, particularly when those designs would make using an iPhone a better experience.

Apple has effectively fought off other antitrust challenges. In a lawsuit over its App Store policies that Epic Games, the maker of Fortnite, brought in 2020, Apple persuaded the judge that customers could easily switch between its iPhone operating system and Google’s Android system. It has presented data showing that the reason few customers change phones is their loyalty to the iPhone.

view presentation on iphone

It also has defended its business practices in the past by highlighting how the App Store, which it opened in 2008, created millions of new businesses. Over the past decade, the number of paid app makers has increased by 374 percent to 5.2 million, which Apple has said is a testament to a flourishing marketplace.

Every modern-day tech giant has faced a major federal antitrust challenge. The Justice Department is also pursuing a case against Google’s search business and another focused on Google’s hold over advertising technology. The Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit accusing Meta, which owns Facebook, of thwarting competition when it bought Instagram and WhatsApp and another accusing Amazon of abusing its power over online retail. The F.T.C. also tried unsuccessfully to block Microsoft from acquiring Activision Blizzard, the video game publisher.

The lawsuits reflect a push by the regulators to apply greater scrutiny to the companies’ roles as gatekeepers to commerce and communications. In 2019, under President Donald J. Trump, the agencies opened antitrust inquiries into Google, Meta, Amazon and Apple. The Biden administration has put even more energy behind the effort, appointing critics of the tech giants to lead both the F.T.C. and the antitrust division of the Department of Justice.

In Europe, regulators recently punished Apple for preventing music streaming competitors from communicating with users about promotions and options to upgrade their subscriptions, levying a 1.8 billion-euro fine. App makers have also appealed to the European Commission , the European Union’s executive arm, to investigate claims that Apple is violating a new law requiring it to open iPhones to third-party app stores.

In South Korea and the Netherlands , the company is facing potential fines over the fees it charges app developers to use alternative payment processors. Other countries, including Britain, Australia and Japan, are considering rules that would undercut Apple’s grip on the app economy.

The Justice Department, which began its investigation into Apple in 2019, chose to build a broader and more ambitious case than any other regulator has brought against the company. Rather than narrowly focus on the App Store, as European regulators have, it focused on Apple’s entire ecosystem of products and services.

The lawsuit filed Thursday focuses on a group of practices that the government said Apple had used to shore up its dominance.

The company “undermines” the ability of iPhone users to message with owners of other types of smartphones, like those running the Android operating system, the government said. That divide — epitomized by the green bubbles that show an Android owner’s messages — sent a signal that other smartphones were lower quality than the iPhone, according to the lawsuit.

Apple has similarly made it difficult for the iPhone to work with smartwatches other than its own Apple Watch, the government argued. Once an iPhone user owns an Apple Watch, it becomes far more costly for them to ditch the phone.

The government also said Apple had tried to maintain its monopoly by not allowing other companies to build their own digital wallets. Apple Wallet is the only app on the iPhone that can use the chip, known as the NFC, that allows a phone to tap-to-pay at checkout. Though Apple encourages banks and credit card companies to allow their products to work inside Apple Wallet, it blocks them from getting access to the chip and creating their own wallets as alternatives for customers.

The government said that Apple refuses to allow game streaming apps that could make the iPhone a less valuable piece of hardware or offer “super apps” that let users perform a variety of activities from one application.

The government’s complaint uses similar arguments to the claims it made against Microsoft decades ago, in a seminal lawsuit that argued the company was tying its web browser to the Windows operating system, said Colin Kass, an antitrust lawyer at Proskauer Rose. He added that the most compelling allegation — and the one that brings it closest to the Microsoft case — is that Apple could be contractually preventing rivals from developing apps that work with other app providers, as “super apps” could.

Other legal experts noted that companies are legally allowed to favor their own products and services, so the government will have to explain why that is a problem with Apple.

“This case is about technology,” Mr. Kass said. “Can the antitrust laws force a company to redesign its product to make it more compatible with competitors’ products?”

Apple has defended itself against other antitrust challenges by arguing that its policies are critical to make its devices private and secure. In its defense against Epic Games, it argued that restraining the distribution of apps allowed it to protect the iPhone from malware and fraud. The practice benefited customers and made the iPhone more attractive than competing devices with Android’s operating system.

The government will try to show that the effect of Apple’s policies was to hurt consumers, not help them.

“Competition makes devices more private and more secure,” said Jonathan Kanter, assistant attorney general of the Justice Department’s antitrust division. “In many instances, Apple’s conduct has made its ecosystem less private and less secure.”

‘App Lock’ lets you protect and hide any app from the iPhone Home Screen

Avatar for Filipe Espósito

iOS provides developers with an API to lock apps with Face ID or Touch ID. However, not every app has this option, and there’s no way to completely hide apps from your device. Luckily, “App Lock” is a simple but powerful app that helps users protect and even hide any apps on their iPhone and iPad. Read on as we detail how the app works.

Lock and hide apps on your iPhone with App Lock

App Lock essentially brings a long-awaited feature for iOS users: the option to completely hide apps or lock them with Face ID or Touch ID. The app doesn’t rely on complex modifications or tricks. Instead, it uses the Screen Time API to control access to apps and system settings.

Once you open App Lock, you’ll see a list of all the apps installed on your iPhone or iPad. Just like the Screen Time settings , App Lock will show your apps organized by category, making it easy to hide or lock multiple apps at once. For example, you can hide all your banking apps with just a few taps by selecting the Productivity & Finance category.

The first tab of the app lets you lock your apps with biometrics, while the second “Conceal” tab completely hides the apps you’ve chosen – even from the App Library. Once you’ve chosen the apps you want to lock or hide, tap Start and you’re done.

In addition to being more intuitive than Screen Time’s native settings, a major advantage of App Lock is that it immediately locks apps, whereas Screen Time forces users to set a time limit for apps before locking them. Of course, to access or unhide apps, you must open App Lock again – which is protected by biometrics and a PIN code.

App Lock also has advanced options for blocking the installation and removal of apps, disabling in-app purchases, and restricting changes to iOS settings.

'App Lock' lets you protect and hide any app from the iPhone Home Screen

You can try App Lock for free . However, unlocking the full app requires a paid subscription. It’s a bit pricey, but it can be worth it for its privacy and security features. It’s worth noting that it requires an iPhone or iPad running iOS 16 or later.
