Delete apps from iPhones & iPads

We’ve had a few questions about the steps to deleting apps from iPhones and iPads this week. These steps will also work for an iPod touch.

Find the app you wish to delete and lightly press down and hold. The app should jiggle and you’ll see an X in the right corner of its icon. Tap on the x.

Make sure not to press too hard, because the deep press on an iOS device might open a menu.  If you find that you’ve accidentally opened any of these menus, just tap outside them and they’ll disappear.

When you tap on the x, you’ll get the option to delete the app. Select Delete.
