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.

So, I read your information on how to uninstall applications, but my phone isn't showing the "red X" It used to but doesn't anymore. Is there another way to uninstall ?? My problem is that none of my installed apps will open. I click on them and the screen blinks and nothing happens. My 2 year old plays her apps on my phone and I have a feeling she may have fiddled with something. So, I was going to try to uninstall and reinstall. Anyone have suggestions ? Thanks for any help, Much appreciated.

I like the iphone, but hate iTunes. It is so user unfriendly and overcontrolled.
You can delete an app, but never your app purchase history. Because apple are evil. To delete an app you need to do this;
1) Open itunes and go to the devices/apps bit and find it in the apps list (u can use the search box). Uncheck the app in the list. Synch with the phone and that will take it off your iphone, but it will stay in your itunes app library (in case u ever want to reinstall it).
2) If you are happy you want to permanently delete it, then go to your iTunes Library/Apps find it, right click it and delete it. It is now gone forever from your device. Though not from your purchase history.
3) if you want to try and hide part of you purchase history do this;
1. to go to the left panel of iTunes and click on iTunes Store.
2. When the store opens, click App Store on the black top bar.
3. You will see the App Store screen, make sure you select the iPhone buttom
4. On the right hand side of the screen you will see a list of App Store Quick Links. Click on the link that says Purchased.
5. This should open the list of everything you ever purchased for this phone with this user ID.
6. Hover the mouse cursor over the app you want to delete, and an X will appear. Click on that X and say yes to the question that will appear, to hide the app.
7. Synch your phone again, just to make sure.
But f course if someone looks at your account info; your app will still be there, because apple are evil.

If the thing u have been reading up there^ doesn't work then try this solutions.
You go on settings then go on general then restrictions then turn deleting apps on.
You may of turned it off so those special apps don't get accidentally deleted like myself
So drag the sideways lever thingy to the right. That should work.
Thank you to to the person that told me this :)

I just found out why the "X" next to the app icons on my I phone disappeared, making it impossible to delete them. I had put restriction on the apps. So, to be able to delete them, I did the following: Go to settings > general > restriction > restriction pass code > disable restrictions
> deleting apps .
This should work, try it.
