    Enter a PIN or passcode.
    Alternatively, press a finger or thumb on the home button. This will trigger the fingerprint sensor and unlock the phone, taking us to the home screen. Once here, we are going to want to find any of the icons that cannot be deleted on the iPhone 6.

  4. 4
    Press and hold any icon.
    Once we press and hold, all of the icons will begin shaking. We can let go at this point. All the ones that can be deleted, such as "Cardio" or "Translate" in our case, will have an "x" in a gray circle on top of them.

    Give one press on an "x".
    It will ask us if we would like to delete the application. It also warns us that doing so "will also delete all of its data". We will tap the "x" on Cardio.

  6. 6
    Tap "Delete" to delete the app or press "Cancel" to go back.
    In our case, we do not want to delete Cardio, so we will tap "Cancel". What we do want to do is hide the Health application, which cannot be deleted.

  14. 14
    Drag it onto Health.
    It will create another folder for us. We will drag Weather back out, as we don't need the folder. It puts the icons back the way they were. We can do this with any of the icons on the phone, even icons such as Passbook or some of the other application icons that don't like to be moved around.

    Release Passbook.
    Now we have a folder that has been created with our Passbook application. It didn't require us to do anything crazy, or quickly move or slide a finger, as in some of the other tutorials available will instruct.
