How to uninstall (close or delete) apps on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (iOS 8 tutorial)

That's the exact mantra that Cupertinians have followed and ever since the first versions of iOS it has been very simple to manage your applications. Nonetheless, this tutorial would be useful to the complete novice, looking for a way to clear up his homescreen, while not yet fully acquainted with the workings of iOS.
So how do you uninstall apps on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and iOS 8? It all boils down to one thing - long hold an icon until all the icons start wiggling. Once that happens, a cross appears on the top of each one. You just press the 'x', confirm that you really want to delete the app, and voila. We have included a short slideshow to illustrate how it all looks like below. Naturally, this will work with all previous iPhones like the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, and earlier, as well as on the iPad Air 2, iPad Air mini, etc.

Yes. with more analysis on iPhone. Deleting/ uninstalling apps is no longer a difficulty. what you need is just a small tool that make you permanently delete useless apps or restore them. I usually use Apowersoft Phone Manager to delete iPhone apps

What kind of garbage article is this? Long holding down the Home button activates Siri, it doesn't make icons wiggle. And why are you even teaching about this at all? Phonearena has gone completely absurd now. Is this a joke?

This article is awful??? A) "The Apple" (first line) B) You do NOT hold down on the home button to delete apps. You hold down on the application. C) The entire article has muddy, repetitive, overall poor wording. I understand basic how-to's bring in Google searches, but this is shameful.

Did you post this to start another war of fanboyism or are you a full-on tech-illiterate?

This article is garbage because if you long press the Home Button, Siri launches. You have to press and hold on an app icon, then hit the little "x". I found this out just by playing with my iPad Mini 2.

The only people I know who may find this article useful will probably not come to this site and read this article. If I thought this article would be useful to them, I'd actually just tell them how to do it rather than send them a link to this article. Even though there are articles that I don't bother reading or I don't find useful, I generally do think there will be an audience for it. I can't think of an audience for this article other than for people who want to make fun of PA, Apple or iPhone users.
