All the Huawei and Honor phones come pre-installed with the company’s own custom skin called “EMUI” based on Android. Just like Xiaomi’s MIUI skin, the Huawei EMUI skin also offers lots of features and customizations. One of such is App Drawer. Here we have quick steps to enable standard swipe-up App Drawer on Huawei P30, P30 Pro, and P30 Lite.
