Deleting Apps

iOS and iPadOS

Hi All, This is my first posting so apologies if this is in the wrong area. Just made an interesting discovery which I thought I'd share. I've only been using IOS for over a year with VoiceOver so this maybe something widely known. However just in case not. Deleting any non Apple apps I always found a pain. Had to do it via the settings_storage route. However, purely by accident I've just found that on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s at least if you find the app, double tap and hold (as if you were going to move it) then find the app again in edit mode and double tap again you can get the option to delete from there. This is using IOS 9.0.2 so not sure if this is something that works on earlier IOs versions or indeed if this works on any other model of iPhone. Would be interested to know if I've just missed this deletion technique or if it is new to IOS 9.

This method of doubletappingb and holding on the app and after double tapping again and getting the option to delete the app has worked on previous iOS versions and previous iPhone models.
