    1. Long-press or 3D Touch on an app folder and tap Rename.
    2. Copy and paste the space between these brackets: [⠀].
    3. For easier access in the future you can paste it into Apple Notes.

The blank space contains the Unicode character of a Braille blank space. This is different than a regular blank space, which is why you can’t just tap the spacebar to rename a folder.
