If you’ve downloaded iPadOS 15 onto your, you have the App Library feature on your home screen. The App Library provides a searchable look at all of your installed iPad apps, grouped by category. Tapping the search box also brings up a full alphabetical list of your apps.
While thestashes the App Library neatly to the right of your home screen pages, the version of the App Library sits squarely in your dock. It takes up valuable real estate on your screen, and it’s frankly a bit of an eyesore.
If you don’t use the App Library much, you might want to remove it from your iPad’s dock, but it’s not that simple. Unlike the other apps in your dock, the App Library can’t be removed simply by pressing down on it and tapping an “x” button.
Luckily, there’s a way to remove the App Library. It’s just hidden in your iPad settings. As a bonus, you can also remove “Recent Apps” from your dock at the same time if you’d like.

How to remove the App Library from your iPad dock in iPadOS 15
On your iPad running iPadOS 15, go to the Settings application.
1. Tap Home Screen & Dock.
2. Under the Dock section, toggle off Show App Library in Dock.
As soon as you do, the App Library icon will disappear from your dock, giving you more room for other apps. Don’t worry, though — you’ll still be able to access the feature by swiping left on your home screen until it appears. You can also use the search feature by swiping down anywhere on your home screen and then typing the name of the app you’re looking for, if the App Library just isn’t your thing.
