Swipe to Delete iOS 9

One could argue that iOS 9’s new swipe to delete feature in the stock Clock app was borrowed from a jailbreak tweak, but the implementation of such a feature is so obvious that concluding such wouldn’t be fair.

Regardless of how it got there, swipe to delete is finally implemented into the stock Clock app in iOS 9. I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s super-happy to see this handy gesture make its way to an app that many of us use regularly.

Swipe to Delete Stock Clock App

Swipe to delete works inside both the World Clock and Alarm tabs of the stock Clock app on iOS 9. It’s another one of those features that’s bound to fly under the radar, but once you know it’s there, it’s like finally!

I never understood why swipe to delete wasn’t present in the stock Clock app up until iOS 8. I always found myself wishing to perform such a simple gesture, especially on larger devices like the iPhone 6 Plus.

What do you think? Was it so obvious that Apple finally decided to tackle it, or was it borrowed from the jailbreak tweak?
