iPhone, Tutorials

If you’re tired of seeing Reels on your Facebook feed and want to remove them from your iPhone, you’ve come to the right place. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps to get rid of those pesky Reels once and for all.

Step 1: Open the Facebook App

To begin, locate the Facebook app on your iPhone’s home screen and tap on it to open.

Step 2: Navigate to the Reels Tab

Once you’re in the Facebook app, look for the navigation bar at the bottom of your screen. Tap on the Reels tab located in the middle of this bar.

Step 3: Access Settings

In the top right corner of your screen, tap on the Settings icon. It looks like three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other.

Step 4: Find and Tap on ‘Preferences’

A menu will appear after tapping on the Settings icon. Scroll down until you find a section called Preferences. Tap on it to continue.

Step 5: Select ‘Reels Preferences’

In Preferences, look for an option called Reels Preferences. Tap on it to access further customization options.

Step 6: Disable Reels

In Reels Preferences, you’ll see a toggle switch labeled Show Reels. By default, it is enabled (displaying a blue color). Simply tap on this switch to turn it off (the switch should now be gray).


  • If you ever change your mind and want to see Reels again, you can follow the same steps mentioned above and toggle the switch back on.
  • Disabling Reels will remove them from your Facebook feed, but it won’t affect their availability in other areas of the app.

Step 7: Close and Relaunch the Facebook App

Now that you have disabled Reels, you need to close the Facebook app completely and relaunch it for the changes to take effect. To do this, simply swipe up from the bottom of your screen (if you have an iPhone with a home button) or swipe up from the bottom and pause slightly in the middle (if you have an iPhone without a home button) to access the app switcher.

Find the Facebook app card and swipe it up or off the screen to close it. Then tap on the Facebook app icon again to relaunch it.


You have successfully removed Reels from your Facebook feed on your iPhone. Enjoy a clutter-free experience!

Remember, if you ever want to bring back Reels, just follow these steps again and toggle the switch back on in Reels Preferences.
