How to Delete Apps From Your iPhone (2022)


Do you want to delete iPhone apps? then this article is for you

This article covers how to delete pre-installed apps from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch as well as other types of apps. The storage space on your phone is increased by deleting unnecessary and underused apps.



This is the fastest and simplest way to delete apps from your phone:

  1. On the iPhone home screen, tap and hold the app icon.

    Note: This is the same process you follow to re-arrange apps. If you have a phone with a 3D Touch screen, don’t press too hard or you’ll activate a menu. It’s more like a tap and light hold.

  2. Tap Remove app or the X in the upper-left corner of the icon (depending on your device model).

  3. When prompted to confirm your decision, tap Delete to delete the app. If you changed your mind, tap Cancel.

    Note: If the app stores some of its data in iCloud, you’re asked whether you want to remove your data from Game Center/iCloud or leave it. If you expect to use the app again, leave the data there. If you change your mind about deleting the app, you can’t undo the uninstall to undelete the app. However, you can install the app again by re-downloading it. There’s one scenario in which your apps might seem to be deleted but are still on your iPhone. If that’s the case, you can get missing apps back on your iPhone.

This option is only available on devices with iOS 13 and up. On those devices, you can delete apps from the Update screen in the App Store app by following these steps:

  1. In the App Store, tap your photo or icon in the upper-right corner.

  2. Scroll to view your list of Available Updates.

  3. For any app that has an update that you want to delete, swipe right to left to reveal the Delete button.

  4. Tap Delete. In the pop-up window, tap Delete again to remove the app from your phone.


This method of deleting apps isn’t the easiest—and one most people haven’t considered—but it works. This approach is helpful if you want to uninstall apps that use a lot of storage space.

These directions work for modern iOS versions but should also be relevant for older ones like iOS 10, 9, and 8.

  1. Open the Settings app.

  2. Go to General > iPhone Storage. If you don’t use a modern version of iOS, tap Usage.

    Note: In older versions of iOS, tap Manage Storage to see all the apps on your phone and how much space each takes up.

  3. Select the app you want to delete, then tap Delete App.

    Note: Beginning in iOS 12, you can offload the app. This removes the app and leaves associated documents and data intact. Reinstall the app to get everything back up and running.

  4. In the confirmation menu, tap Delete App to continue with the uninstall.
