How to Put Five Apps in the iOS 8 Dock

There are many ways to add icons to the iOS 8 dock, but the tweak betterFiveIconDock keeps things simple. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have more spacious displays, so this tweak takes advantage of the extra room on these two devices.

Once installed, a fifth app icon can be dragged and added directly to the dock. Going back to four icons means simply dragging the extra icon back onto the main home screen. The best part is what happens when the iPhone 6 Plus is rotated into landscape mode.

As you would expect, betterFiveIconDock rotates all five dock icons with proper spacing. With this tweak installed, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users can optimize dock space in a way that looks and feels just like stock iOS 8.
