January 23, 2014, 2:04 PM — Here's how you can create an iOS 7 home screen with no app icons on it. This can be very useful if you prefer a clean, uncluttered home screen. It works especially well if you have high quality wallpaper that you want to see without app icons all over it.
1. Plug your iPhone or iPad into your computer.
2. Open iTunes.
3. Select your iOS device in iTunes.
3. Tap the + button to create a new home screen.
4. Drag your new home screen from the right all the way to the left so it's the first home screen.
5. Click the Done button.
This will have no impact on the home screen icon arrangements, it simply moves the initial page aside. All you are doing is creating a new blank page and placing that as the first screen you see when you unlock the device.
