How to move or delete apps on iPhone 6s without triggering 3D Touch Quick Actions

With the introduction of new features such as Home screen Quick Actions using 3D Touch, we’re hearing that some iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users are having trouble putting the app icons on the Home screen in wiggle mode to move or delete them. They end up triggering Home screen Quick actions because of 3D Touch.

Here are some tips on how to move or delete apps on your iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to avoid accidentally triggering Quick Actions because of 3D Touch.

How to move or delete apps on iPhone 6s

  • Go to the Home screen.
  • Now, gently place your finger lightly on the app icon you want to move or delete, and wait for a few seconds to put it in jiggle mode. Note, you can no longer press firmly on the app icon as it would trigger Quick Actions.
  • Tip: If you’re still triggering Quick Actions then the foolproof method is to find a folder like Extras, and place your finger or press as firmly as you want on the folder, and wait for a few seconds to put the app icons and folders in jiggle mode. Since folders don’t have Quick Actions, it doesn’t matter how firmly you press on them without accidentally triggering Quick Actions.
