How do I uninstall an iPhone AppStore application?

Delete App

To uninstall an application purchased or otherwise installed from the Apple App Store, simply do the following:

  • On devices running iOS 13 or later hold your finger on the icon for the application you wish to uninstall (the same action you take to move or re-arrange home screen icons). On devices running iOS 14 or later you can hold your finger anywhere on the Home screen to make all apps on the Home screen wiggle.
  • Click the "x" in the upper left hand corner of the icon for the application you wish to remove. In iOS 14 or later tap the the minus (-) sign in the upper left-hand corner to delete an individual app.

You can also use Touch ID to bring up and individual app menu to remove an app from your device. Just use a long press on the app icon you would like to remove then tap the Delete App tab from the app menu.

If you want to re-install the application at a later time, simply visit the AppStore and select the application again.

Hi there,

I deleted the facebook app (it was playing up), but the option to install it is greyed out as it thinks I've already got it. I've just done a sync and it's shows up on my apps on the PC but it's still not come back to my phone.

Does anyone know how I can get back on my iphone??

Cheers
Adele

HEY DERS AN APPLICATION IN MY IPHONE DAT DOESNT SHOWS DAT X IN THE UPPER LEFT HAND CORNER...SO I CANT DELETE AT...IS DER ANY OTHER WAY TO DELETE DAT APPLICATION

Simple enough
On the iphone/ipod touch, Disconnect wifi / gprs and connect again; it will ask for connecting to itunes store again. Do cancel it and don't connect;
Then press and hold the app and get the jiggling screen; with TOP LEFT corner displaying 'X'
press on it and the App gets deleted

I have been able to delete most apps just fine using the "wiggling X" method, but now I have 4 apps that appear to be stuck on the phone and the "x" never appears for me to delete them. Is there a way to delete these apps?

Thanks this post really helps

i Bought an Iphone 3gs from ebay un locked when i got it connected an add for the Iphone 4 comes on everytime my phone goes to auto lock. How can it be removed? thanks...

but how do i find out what i aready bought??
like i upgraded my iphone and all the apps are gone now.
how do i find out what the applications were.
i dont remember all of them.

Can anyone tell me if an iphone 4.1 updated version can b unlock? if not when could it b done?

this article is garbage because it doesn't work to remove the app. But, glad the audience is more knowledgeable than the writer because the real way to remove apps is in the comment exchange.

Very impressive information has been provided here about the IPhone technology. This article will surely help IPhone users. I have learned a lot from this article.
