    When I hold my finger on ‘clock ‘ it doesn’t work the way you showed. It goes into a mode where you delete apps (with all the apps shaking )and having an ‘x’ to delete the app.
    Mine is a new 7 plus phone.

    Paul: You have to use 3D touch. Press down harder than usual. If you just tap and hold, it will act as before.

    Is there a setting for 3D touch? No matter how hard I press I too get the shaking apps. (7 plus)

    Kathie: It is on by default, but if you turned it off the setting is: Settings, General, Accessibility, 3D Touch. There is an on/off switch, sensitivity slider, and even an area to practice.

    I have iphone 6s, and I cannot find the “3D Touch” on/off switch under Settings, General, Accessibility, 3D Touch.

    Bobbie: so you are looking at the 3D Touch section and you don’t have 3D Touch controls there? That doesn’t make sense. What do you see there then? The on/off switch should be the very first thing at the very top.
