I've just updated to OS7 and the double click on the home button, press and hold the app and tap the delete button doesnt seem to be working on my iPhone 4. Suggestions?

iPhone 4, iOS 7

    Why is it that people today are unable to use basic manners when speaking with one another? Your reply was very snarky & rude. If it was such a burden to respond, don't. Otherwise, play nice. Please & thank you.

    This is online  "etiquette"

    They are wasting everyone's time.

    Wish i knew how to insert a screen shot, cntrl-V doesn't work.

     

    Anyway:

     

    1. The sidebar labeled "More like this" says "No similar content found".

    2. There are 40 replies to the origianl post saying "I have this problem too" -looks like a lot of folks found this post looking for an answer.

    3. A lot of  us found your answer because we found this post. It can be hard to find answers because people word things differently -so it's a good thing that people ask the same question in different ways. It makes finding info easier. Most of us will come to this forum less than once per year, and then only through google. Forums typically have terrible search tools, making it pointless to start in a forum. Further more, maybe enough posts will get the attention of Apple to not make such a horrible interface. "Upgrade" the OS and then search the internet to find out how to turn-off apps -unbelievable.

    4. Your answer isn't working for me. I try swiping upward, apps move up and then come back down. I guess it's an acquired skill.
