How to Stop Wiggling App Icons on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR

You just deleted an unnecessary app and wanted to stop the shaking app icons on your iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and iPhone XR. But don't know how to finish the edit mode; find out how it's done.

Whenever I find any app useless or no longer need it, I delete it. The process of eliminating an app on iPhone 8 or earlier is pretty simple. Just touch and hold the app you want to shoot out of your device and when the apps start wiggling, tap on the “X” button on the app and then hit Delete in the popup to confirm. In the end, press the Home button to finish. But how do you stop wiggling app icons after eliminating an app on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR as it doesn’t have a Home button?

Guess what; it’s just as easy to get out of the edit mode on the iPhone X series. Check out where the twist lies!
