First of all, you have to hold any app on home screen and then you will see that all apps will start “Jiggling” and an “X” button will appear at the corner of all apps.
Then take up any app which you want to hide and make a folder by placing it on any other app as shown in the image below.
When a Folder will be created, then Press Home Button and the apps will stop jiggling. Now again hold that app which you want to hide or which you had placed in a Folder (in Step 2). And move it to the right side of that folder.
And place it on the second page of that folder and then Press home button. Now close the folder and you will see that the app is on the second page of the folder. Anyone can’t think about it and can’t move to the second page of the folder. (as shown below)
Your App is Hidden and one can’t see it. You can also see the image above.

This is a little bit complicated method but this is a way better than Method 1. Now without wasting time check out the steps stated below about how to hide apps on iPhone.
At first, you have to again hold any app until all apps start to jiggle. Now move to the last page of your Home Screen by swiping right to left.

After that select “Photo Library” option and then click on the Screenshot that we had to take in step 1.
Then click on “Send” option and loading will be started.
When the loading will be completed, then scroll down and you will see your screenshot with blank icons. Click on the first or “1 x 1” icon as highlighted in the image below.
Then you will see an icon will be created, which will be the same as the color of your wallpaper. Then click on “open in” symbol as highlighted in the image below. And after that select “Add to Home screen” option as shown in the image below also.
