Apple has declassified 3D Touch as obsolete and added shortcut special shortcut menus on the home screen for all devices running iOS 13, regardless of whether you're using a 3D touch-enabled device or not.
This means that the new context menu behavior will be displayed on iPod touch, all iPhone models and all iPad models – including the new iPhone 11.
A single long press of an app icon now triggers this new action menu. In supporting apps, you'll see features like quick links to things in the app. However, if you only want to delete one downloaded app, the procedure may not be clear.
To delete an app on iOS 13
- Long-press the icon you want to delete.
- When the context menu appears, tap the "Rearrange apps" button.
- This calls the shake mode, which displays the known close buttons.
- Tap the close button "x" and a confirmation dialog will be displayed.
- Tap the red delete button to confirm and the app will be deleted.
There is also a second way to enter the edit mode for the splash screen. If you keep the icon pressed for a long time, keep your finger pressed. The context menu is displayed, but it is ignored. Hold down the button for about five seconds. This will take you directly to the shuffle mode and the close buttons will be visible.
These instructions apply to iOS 13 or higher iPhone and iPad devices.
