Alistair writes: Can you change the order of phone favorites on an iPhone 5?

Great questions, Alistair—and yes, there’s an easy way to rearrange your iPhone favorites in any order you want.

Here’s how…

  • Go to your Favorites (tap Phone, then tap the Favorites tab at the bottom of the screen), then tap the Edit button in the upper-left corner.
  • Now, see the row of three-line “handles” to the right of all your favorites? Tap and hold one of them, then slide it up or down until it’s in the order you want.
  • Rinse and repeat until your favorites are arranged just as you like them, then tap the blue Done button.

Bonus tip

Want to delete a favorite? You can do one of two things:

  • Either tap the Edit button, tap the little red circle next to the favorite you want to nix, then tap the Delete button that appears, or…
  • Just swipe a favorite from left to right, then tap Delete.
