How to hide unused apps on iPhone (without jailbreak)

For the longest time, the only reasons I ever jailbreak my iPhone was to hide the generally unused apps (Newsstand, Game Centre etc.) and F.lux.

There’s still no way to get F.lux on the device however, there now appears to be a way to hide the undesirable apps without jailbreaking, alas through a bug.

That should hide the app in question and you will no longer see it on the homescreen. You’ll still be able to search and run it via Spotlight and note that the app will reappear if you restart your device. Other than that, you’re good to go. Tested and working in the latest iOS 8.1.2.
