How To Delete Apps on Apple Devices
There are a few different ways to delete an app. One of the most common ways is to click on and hold down the app you want to delete. A list of options pops up with: “Remove App,” “Share App” or “Edit Home Screen.”
By selecting “Remove App” another set of options is given with: “Delete App,” “Remove from Home Screen” or “Cancel.”
If you only wish to remove the app from your home screen, select that option and the app will still be stored in the App Library. If you want to completely delete the app, select “Delete App” and it will be removed from your phone—including from the Library.
