Deleting an app from your iPhone or iPad is a simple process and can be done in a matter of seconds. Here are the steps for doing this:

  1. On the iOS home screen (where you see all of your apps) find the app you want to delete and press and hold your finger directly on it for a few seconds.
  2. After you do this, you'll notice that all of the apps on your screen will start to wiggle and that they'll all have an (x) in the top left corner. NOTE: The apps that come with iOS by default like Clock, Calendar, Photos, etc will not have this option
  3. To delete an app, simply tap on the (x) in the top left corner.
    You'll then see a message appear confirming that you want to delete the selected app. Tap on 'Delete' to confirm that you do want to delete the app from your device.
  4. Once you have finished deleting the app (or apps) desired, tap on the home button on your device to stop the wiggling and have the delete (x) no longer show on your apps.
