If you have a lot of apps, like me, you likely have a lot of Home Screen pages. With many pages, swiping them repetitively, over and over to find a specific page can feel very tedious. If this sounds like your iPhone experience, you should know their is a much faster way to get around your Home Screen pages, thanks to iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.
This if for the iPhone or iPad running iOS 14 or iPadOS 14

There is the Dots Bar, that indicate which Home Screen page you are on. In portrait orientation, they are above the Home Screen Dock, while they are at the very bottom in landscape mode. They indicate which Home Screen page you are currently on. Refer to below image:
With one finger, tap and hold the dots, and an outline will appear around them. See below image:
Without lifting your finger, slide your finger to the left or right. The Home Screen page will change. The faster you move your finger, the faster you will scroll through the pages. Lift your finger to stop scrolling and land on a page. Note! If you land on your last dot (a Home Screen page), you have to swipe left one more time to view your App Library page. To exit the App Library, swipe up.
This technique can come in very handy if you have many pages of apps. But both the new App Library and the new Home Screen Widgets (blog post coming) may make you rethink how your apps are organized.
That’s it. Your scrolling is now much faster.
