How do I delete / remove an iPhone app that is stuck installing?

Sometimes iPhone applications get stuck waiting or loading when installing. These apps might be frozen with a blank icon and no way to remove them for days. Holding down on the home screen to delete the stuck app won't even show the black circle with an "x" that appears on other icons. Here are instructions on how to delete these waiting applications:

  1. Reboot your iPhone normally. See this link for instructions on how to restart your iPhone.
  2. If the apps are still stuck on the home screen, try logging out of the App Store temporarily. Navigate to Settings -> Store -> Apple ID -> Sign Out. Now open the App Store and Navigate to the Featured section. Scroll to the bottom of the page and touch the Sign In -> Use Existing Apple ID. Log in and the stuck apps should reset.
  3. Still have strange icons on the screen or frozen downloading apps? Connect your iPhone to the computer and open iTunes. Navigate to the app store. Install the apps you are having a problem with on the computer then sync your iPhone.


If the app is stuck and won't delete try going to manage storage, find the app and delete from there.

Hi, my problem is I've deleted Facebook a while back. But. Ow I can't reinstall as it's saying it's already installed. Just realised now that it was not uninstalled properly. How can i uninstall it properly please? Tried doing it in iTunes to no avail. Really keen to hear from you and resolve this issue.

Yelp was stuck downloading on my phone for three months. I followed several ideas off the Internet to remove it and none worked until number two on this. Thank you!

None of those worked. I went back to the App Store and started a new install. It finally loaded then I could delete normal way.

Thanks I just restarted and back to the normal ...

I’ve tried all the steps - restarting my phone, resetting the phone and it won’t work! Also tried logging out from App Store and signing in again, no luck. For almost a year, I can’t delete apps I no longer want and 2 apps I use are suddenly “loading” for past 6 hours. No progress. Need help urgently as they’re critical to my business.
