Maximum number of apps icons & pages in folders & total pages on iPhone from iOS 7 thru till 9.0.2?

Maximum number of:

  • Total Pages on Springboard outside folders
  • Total App icons allowed in iOS folders

    • Pages of icons inside each folder
    • App icons per page of iOS folders

For each iOS version from 7 till now on 9.0.2

Please share.

PS: Only other such post I found is this for an iPad which does not cover the specific quantities & detailed numbers I am asking, nor is it asking for iPhone, nor the change/ shift of these numbers thru iOS versions.

  • The only change I'm aware of from iOS 7 to 9 is that iPad folders are now 4x4 in iOS 9, rather than the 3x3 grid of iOS 7 and 8. Are there more changes? – Timothy Mueller-Harder Oct 21 '15 at 5:20
  • This post has some data for iOS 7 that you may find useful. – Timothy Mueller-Harder Oct 21 '15 at 5:21
  • I was hoping to get clearview on how Apple has changed these numbers from 7 to 9. Thanks though. – Alex S Oct 21 '15 at 5:59
  • I know—in my first comment, I said that I think the only way these numbers have changed is that iOS 9-running iPads can how have 4x4 grids. That's all, unless you count iPhone screen size changes in that span. – Timothy Mueller-Harder Oct 21 '15 at 6:13

An easy way to check this is to install Xcode for free from the App Store and look at each simulator for each device you care to catalog.

I suppose someone could make a reference table or Wikipedia article to document this over time, but I’m not convinced this would be useful for things other than a trivia question.
