Question Need iTunes Alternative for Arranging iPhone Apps on Mac

Hello everyone!

I am trying to find a program with which I can arrange the apps on my iPhone into folders and just move them around using the big screen of my computer (Mac), although I can access Window$ as well, using Parallels.

If anyone can be so kind as to give me any suggestions for what program(s) might be able to do this, I would be most grateful.

I have over 350 apps on my phone and I just want to get them organized in an easier way than using the iPhone interface on the device itself.

Thanks so much for any help you might be able to offer.

Take good care and have a nice day!


P.S. I tried using iTunes, but Apple has removed this feature from iTunes 12.7, so I installed 12.6.3, but the app arranging on this program leaves a lot to be desired. For example, when I try and move an app to a new location, rather than moving the other apps to accommodate it, the program places the app in a Folder by itself! Ugh!

Thumbs down Apple doesn't let iTunes have competitors

I scoured the web for 'home screen organizer' or 'app organizer' apps in vain.
I found one article for "Best iPhone File Manager Apps" that looked hopeful at first ... but they aren't what you're looking for.
No, Apple lets iTunes manage apps and doesn't want/like 3rd party apps meddling ... I could NOT find any substitute for it.

can you use teamviewer or something to control your phone?

a phone/screen mirror would let you make folders on phone and drag apps into them
