    "Delete Field" If you press them it will delete that particular field.

    Oh, i feel stupid now. Not really apple'ish. With a weird sign. IMO An X would be more logic.
    But thanks for the help!

    Just to note, Apple appears to be gradually standardizing on a green + being "new item", red - like that being "delete item", and the grey x being "cancel".

    The red minus shows up in the iPhone OS in this capacity; the X symbol you were expecting is used to clear a search field and to mean "cancel current operation" in both Safari and iTunes.
