If you have an iPad Pro you may have seen it in the situation: you click on an application icon for a while so that the cross appears to uninstall it, but ... it does not appear. You can move the site icon and rearrange your main screen, but the cross does not appear to uninstall the application.
What happen? Well, depending on the device you have, iOS 11 has slightly changed the behavior of the system icons when you click on them. And in the case of iPad Pro, that means learning something new.
It turns out that in the iPad Pro, when you keep an icon pressed, the first thing that can appear is a dialog window in a very similar way to the one that should come out when you click on a screen with 3D touch. It does not work with all applications, only with those that have this function active.
The only thing you have to do to get the cross appears is simply to keep the button pressed for more time, nothing more. Instead of a second, two. After the icon increases in size under your finger momentarily, the cross will appear and you can delete the application. This only applies to iPad Pro, so that in the other iPad models we can continue to eliminate applications as always.
I do not clarify: is there another way to eliminate applications?
It is easy to get the hang of holding a little more finger, but you just need to have a bad pulse or be confused with the screen to end up losing your nerves. If you do not get the cross out, you can always delete the applications you want with this alternative method. Go to Settings, and in the Storage section of the iPad you will see a list of applications sorted by the amount of space they use.
Click on the application you want to delete, and you will enter a tab where you can uninstall it (preserving the data you use, a good way to save new space in iOS 11) or delete it completely together with all its data and related files.
