Delete Apps On Iphone: Step by Step Instructions

 

Deleting Apps Directly from the iPhone/iPad Home Screen

 

Let's say you want to delete GroupMe from the home screen of your iPhone/iPad.

 

Step 1

Locate the app on your home screen. Don't open it; just find where it is located. Normally, to open an app, you have to tap the icon. Instead of doing that, press the icon and hold down for a few seconds.

Step 2

You will notice that there are three options to choose from - however, tap the 'Delete App' option.

Step 3

Method 2: Deleting Apps from Settings

 

In this alternate method, you can delete apps directly from your iPhone's settings. The advantage here is that you can see how much space the app was hogging up.

 

Let's say you want to delete TikTok, but you want to see how much space it was taking up before deleting.

 

To do this, follow these steps:

Step 1

Tap the 'Settings' on your home screen. This will look like a cogwheel. It will open to a page with many different settings options.

Scroll down until you see the 'General' tab, then tap it.
