How to Uninstall / Delete Apps in iOS 13 on iPhone

Confused? You can’t delete apps in iOS 13, you might be, because the trick of deleting apps is changed, but here is a quick way to delete apps in iOS 13 on any iPhone.

Before installing iOS 13, all iPhone users were using the same technique to delete unwanted apps in previous iOS versions, and the technique was:

Press and hold on the app’s icon until the app starts shaking back and forth. Then tap on the X button that appears in the corner of the icon, confirm to delete the app, and the app will be deleted forever from your iPhone. Once you have deleted apps on your iPhone, you’d either tap the “Done Button” on iPhone (X or later) or press the “Home button” on iPhone (older models).
