    Hi. I have a problem: I can not delete an icon from the home screen of the iPad.
    Tightening the desired icon and when all are shaking the 'x' does not appear to delete it.
    How to solve this issue?

    If its one of the standard in built apps (mail, ipod, videos etc.) you can't remove it without jailbreaking.

    Which app is it?

    Hello
    The icon I want to delete is a site that I sent to the home screen.
    But I already decided the question: it was necessary to enable 'delete applications' within the constraints of General settings.
    Thanks, however, the interest of all to help me.

    Hi, Nicole1! Welcome to iPF!

    Would you like to know how to remove an icon from the homescreen, or how to add a bookmark to the homescreen?

    I still don't seem to see the answer to the question, of how to remove icons added by "add to homescreen" are removed. Please let me know, thanks!

    Hi, Shinaynaye! Welcome to iPF!

    They are removed the same way you remove/delete apps from the homescreen: tap and hold until they start to wiggle, then tap the little x to remove them.

    Can't remove icons from Homescreen

    I have a new iPad mini retina. Unlike my first iPad, holding down an icon that I installed does result in the icons jiggling, but does NOT result in an x popping up. Has anyone w the new iPad mini retina had this problem? What' s the solution?

    Try going to Settings>General>Restrictions>Deleting Apps and make sure that the deleting apps function is turned on. If it's turned off you'll experience what you just reported.
