Did you know, it's possible to make your apps icons disappear without ANY external software? No jail breaking either! It's possible, and in fact even easy to do this, you just need a little timing!
Note: This method has been tested by myself, and despite never having a problem with it, I guarantee in no way this is 100% safe, use at your risk.
Step 1: Get Ready
10 small steps for you, 1 giant glitch for iOS 6 kind
Step 2: Group It With Another App
Step 3: Take the Other Apps Out!
Once you do this put the group on the 3rd page of your apps. This is important!
Step 4: Move Newsstand to the 2nd Page
Step 5: Timing Is Everything
If done correctly this will start jiggle mode.
Step 6: Open Newsstand
Step 7: Press the Home Button
Wow, only a few more steps to go!
It's worth noting you can place tons of apps inside newsstand if you use the same trick, excluding groups!
Step 8: Open the Group
Allow it to restart
Step 9: Find the App You Hid
Step 10: OH MY GOSH HOW DO I GET MY ICON BACK???/How to Avoid Icons Coming Back
1. You reboot your device
2. Your device does due to battery and you recharge it
So keep your device charged and never power down to prevent having to reexecute the glitch.
On the flip side, if you want them back, hold down the power button, then slide to power down. Once it shuts down hold the power button for about 2 seconds
