Move items with drag and drop on iPhone
With drag and drop, you can use a finger to move text and other items within an app. For example, you can rearrange a list in Reminders, move a text selection or a photo in Notes, or drag an event to a new time slot in Calendar. (Not all third-party apps support drag and drop.)
In a text editing app, select the text you want to move.
Touch and hold the selected text until it lifts up, then drag it to another location within the app.
If you drag to the bottom or top of a long document, it automatically scrolls.
If you change your mind about moving an item, lift your finger before dragging, or drag the item off the screen.
Select multiple items to move
Touch and hold the first selected item, drag it slightly, and continue holding it.
While still holding the first item, tap additional items with another finger. A badge indicates the number of selected items.
Drag all of the items together.
If you change your mind about moving items, lift your finger before dragging, or drag the items off the screen.
