How do you remove an icon from your desktop on an iPad?
It’s actually easy to remove the icon. Simply press and hold any icon on the desktop, actually called the home screen, of the iPad. Once you have held long enough (about 2-3 seconds), all the icons will wiggle and those that can be removed have an X in the top left corner.
Tap the X, and the icon will be removed. Keep in mind that this will remove the App complete from the iPad. Or if you want to create groups of icons, like all of your games, simply drag one icon onto the other. This will create a folder that you can name whatever you’d like and you can add as many Apps as you want to this folder.
Once you are done moving the icons, press the home button to return the icons to normal.
