If you hate to see label or folder names on your iPhone, then you have a genuine reason to be on this page, there is a workaround in iOS 12 to make those labels disappear for good but there’s a little bit of technicality involved.
There have been some pretty odd methods for making nameless folders in past iOS versions, particularly, the one where you’d install a food-related app like Starbucks and drag it onto any other app. When the folder was created, it’d show up without any name and you could save it that way.
That trick doesn’t work in newer iOS versions, instead, creating just a generic “Folder” label.
While Apple fixed that oversight with a cheap band-aid, there’s another way to remove those annoying typed-out folder descriptions and the answer is just too easy if you know anything about Unicode.

The Unicode character for a regular space is U+0020, which is a no-go. Apple assumes you probably hit the spacebar by accident before hitting “Done,” therefore making a mistake. What we need is a different space character, specifically, the Braille blank space, U+2800. So copy the blank space in between the brackets ([ ]) below.
[⠀] - U+2800
Once you’ve copied the Braille blank space, tap-and-hold on the folder name you want to change to enter edit mode, “X” out what’s there, then paste the U+2800 blank space you copied. Next, exit the folder and tap “Done” or just click your Home button or swipe up from the bottom on newer iPhone models to save your changes.
The only way it’ll revert to visible folder names is even if you manually type them out yourself or restore to a clean iOS version or an older backup.
