Delete or Position iOS Apps from Search

In iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, Apple added a feature that would have been even more welcome before the advent of the App Library: the capability to manage apps from Search.

But it’s still handy as a way to delete or position an app you can’t find on a Home screen page.

Swipe down from the middle of the Home screen to enter Search, after which you can work with any app you see in Siri Suggestions or find with a search

➊. Touch and hold an app to display its contextual menu

➋. including a Delete App option. Or touch and hold it and start dragging to move it to a Home screen page

➌. Bonus: you can even drag an app out multiple times to put it on multiple Home screen pages or in multiple folders!
