    The new Dock can quickly become over populated with icons as you use your various apps. Removing them is a problem for me, however. The instructions say to lightly touch the icon you want to remove from the dock and slide it to the main screen. This has not worked for me. In fact on occasion the move removes the icon from the main screen. More often nothing happens and it remains in the dock. Has this move worked for you?

    My immediate solution was to turn off “Show suggested and recent Apps” in the dock. I’m not sure that was Apple’s intention though.

    The three dock positions on the right side of the dock are for your three most recently used apps. The other apps are the ones you selected to be in the dock and aren’t automatically changed or added to. It works in a similar manner to the dock in macOS.

    I have moved items in and out of the dock according to the directions and it has worked for me.

    If you don't like seeing the three recent apps on the right, you can turn them off in Settings > General > Multitasking & Dock.

    However, once you get a handle on how multitasking and the new dock works, I think you'll want them. It's the quickest way to switch between recently used apps.

    This area is also where the continuity feature work (you are doing something on your iPhone, and want to switch to the iPad.) The open app on your iPhone (if it supports continuity) shows up on the right side of the dock.

    In this example I have a web site open on my iPhone, so Safari with a little iPhone icon shows up on the right side of my dock. If I tap on this, Safai is opened to the same site and place currently open on my iPhone.

    Note: Also notice the sublte and easily missed line seperating the recent/suggested/continuity section from the rest of the dock.

    Hi it’s only been a couple of hours, found something that you might be able to help me with.IMG_2760.jpg
    Here is a photo with the normal stuff that was at the bottom in iOS 10. As you see it gets kinda messy now when it’s opened in a page with apps.
    On the Dock? I don’t use the blue iCloud file, is it possible to remove the file logo and put it there instead?
    I have tried but failed so far.

    Thanks in Advance

    What you see above the dock, is the App Switcher. All you can see there, are apps you’ve used. It’s not possible to move an app icon from the dock to the App Switcher. You’d have to open the app, to see it there.

    On iOS 10, you have thumbnails almost as big as the screen. That’s different now in iOS 11. The thumbnails are way smaller. That’s also where you can close apps, by swiping the thumbnail towards the top of the screen, as before.

    Or did you try moving an app to the Control Centre?
