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

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?

How to Quit Edit Mode After Deleting Apps on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR

Step #1. First off, you need to enter the edit mode on your iPhone. To do so, you have to touch and hold an app icon.

Step #2. And when an app starts shaking, the Done button will appear at the top right corner. Tap on it.

That’s all folks!

App icons will get back to their normalcy.

As the Done button is located in a corner, my eyes couldn’t notice it initially. Hence, I thought the only way to get out of the edit mode was to press the side button. But it was not convenient at all. Luckily, my eyes soon found the slightly hidden button.

Your take:
