I have been using an iPhone since the iPhone 2G, and one of my favorite iOS gestures of all time is what my colleague Dieter Bohn's & # 39; jiggly mode & # 39; namely, when you hold down an app and all the apps on your screen begin to wobble. This means that you can move them and, if necessary, delete them. That behavior hasn't really changed since it was first introduced in January 2008, but iOS 13 is going to shake it up a bit.
In iOS 12 and older, if you press and hold an app (without using 3D Touch), it takes just one second for all your apps to start dancing, and you can move or delete them as you want. But in iOS 1
Depending on the app, the menu will be different, but apps will not go into jiggly mode as before. But do not be afraid: it is just that they do not enter immediately . You can still get into jiggly mode quite easily and there are a few different ways to do it.
My preference is to simply press the app icon with your finger, even after the pop-up menu appears, and jiggly mode is activated.
When the pop-up menu appears after a long press, you can also drag your finger from the app icon to "Rearrange apps" and then release it.
Or when the pop key long press menu appears, you can drag your finger down and off the screen and the app will follow, activating the jiggly mode.
That's it! One of these methods allows you to put your app in jiggly mode so that you can rearrange and delete apps. It takes a few times to get used to it, but it is easy to adjust.
