The App Library on your iPad provides a searchable look at all of your installed apps, grouped by categories such as productivity, travel, social and finance. If you tap on the search box at the top of the App Library, you can check out a full alphabetical list of your apps.
However, while the iPhone stashes the App Library neatly to the right of all your home screen pages, the iPad 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
On your iPad, go to the Settings application and do the following:
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.
