How To Move Apps On iPhone

Hey! You learned about widgets on your iPhone! Great! However, what about app icons? How to move icons on iPhone from one screen to another? Yikes! Sounds daunting! However, moving apps on the iPhone is rather simple. I explain how to do so in the tutorial below. Ready? Read on!

First things first, turn on your iPhone! I know. I said this before.  Who knows? Maybe you are on a desktop right now. Nonetheless, make sure the iPhone is on. Secondly, search for the app that you want to move to the home screen.

Wait, are you trying to delete an app from the home screen? No worries, search for that app as well. The method is the same. Did you find the app or icon? Yes? Great!

Thirdly, tap and hold the app icon. Hmm, give it a slight hold for about 2 seconds. Eventually, all your apps start wiggling about the screen.

However, do not hold/press the app icon for too long or too hard. Tapping in this manner activates 3D Touch and displays alternative options. A gentle tap and hold will do!

Now, tap and hold the app you want to move. Move it to the position you want. Voila! You just rearranged an app on the iPhone home screen.

Oh! Wait! Did you want to delete that app? Yes? Deletable apps feature a small x in the upper right-hand corner. Tap that little x, and this removes the app.

However, deleting the app means removing the app from your iPhone. You can download the app again from the App Store. Additionally, here are the bullet points!

Bullet Points

  • Switch on the iPhone
  • Locate the app that you want to move on the Home screen.
  • Tap and hold the app
  • The icons start jiggling
  • Tap and hold the app again and move the app to any place you want.
  • Drag it from screen to screen and drop it in the place you want it to be. (See video tutorial below)
