The Apple Shortcuts app replaced the famous Workflow app in its time. It was released pre-installed in iOS 13 and iPadOS 13, it works to launch apps, run automatic tasks, change app icons (as we show you here), among other functions. If you like to be organized on your Apple device, today we show you how to organize all the shortcuts in folders within the same Apple Shortcuts application.
Apple shortcuts, a breakthrough in automating daily tasks
Those users who are already familiar with Apple Shortcuts, I’m sure they already have endless recipes (automated orders) for their day to day. If you don’t know it or haven’t used it, let me tell you that this app allows you to quickly perform a task or operation on the iPhone or iPad with a single touch. Yes, it is possible to create a procedure for the device to execute when clicking on the recipe or invoking Siri.
In iOS 14, Apple provided the ability to create folders and in this way organize all the created shortcuts. A good idea may be to create folders both for personal tasks and another for work, or even create categories depending on what the shortcut is about. Shortcuts to start music, podcasts, streaming services, etc. Or perform functions of alarms, notes, reminders, to name a few examples.
How to create Apple Shortcut folders
Remember that you must be on iOS 14 / iPadOS 14 to be able to create the folders, since in iOS 13 this function does not exist.
