How To Fix iPadOS 16 Folder Bug

Apple will have to fix this glitchy animation in an upcoming software update.

Until then, the only workaround available is to remove the folder from Dock. However, this might negatively affect your productivity, because apps will be harder to open.

Tip: Use Spotlight search to compensate until Apple issues a fix.
