Move and delete: how to move or delete apps | iOS 11 Guide

Moving icons around on your screen is easy, as is deleting any apps that you no longer use.

Hold your finger on one of the apps for a couple of seconds and all the icons will begin shaking. You can now drag to rearrange them.

To move an app to a different page, drag to the edge of the screen and wait a few seconds until it moves across.

The little ‘X‘ icon in the corner of downloaded apps allows you to delete them and free up space for new ones. If you change your mind, these can be easily reinstalled from the App Store. To stop the apps shaking, press the Home button.

Check app size and delete

If your phone is low on storage, it’s worth knowing what’s taking up all the space. To find out, open the Settings app, select General and then iPhone Storage.

This shows the space remaining on your device, as well as all your apps and their size in descending order. You can also delete apps from this screen to free up additional storage space – select the app name followed by Delete App to remove.
