How do I delete or uninstall Apps on my iPhone? This is a question I have been asked many times, so I thought it was time to make a quick tutorial. This is very much for the iOS novice
How to Delete An App…
So, you have downloaded an App from the App Store but it isn’t what you were looking for, here is a simple guide to removing that App. This is the same for all editions of iOS including the new iOS 7.
- Locate the App on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
- Press and hold the icon with your finger, after a couple of seconds the icon will start to shake.
- Press the cross (X) in the corner of the App icon (See Image above).
- You App will then be removed. If may ask you about Game Center or App Data. Simply opt to remove this.
On a side note. You cannot remove ‘stock’ Apps from the iPhone. Stock Apps are those that came with the device and are factory installed. These are protected as they form part of the operating system.
