Here's how to move apps to your Top Shelf, force quit problematic apps, and delete third-party apps taking up extra space.

The fourth-generation Apple TV supports third-party apps, allowing you to watch movies, play games, browse recipes, and a lot more. But with all those available apps, you're going to want some way of organizing them—and deleting the ones that take up too much space.

How to rearrange apps on the Apple TV

  1. Use the Siri Remote's touchpad to select an app icon, then click and hold on the icon. (On a third-party controller, use the D-pad to select an icon, then press and hold A.)
  2. When the icon starts to jiggle, release your finger (or the A button) and use the touchpad (or the D-pad) to move the app around your Home screen.
  3. When you're happy with its new location, click (or press A) again to exit Edit mode.

How to force quit an app on the Apple TV

  1. Press the Home button to return to the Home screen of your Apple TV.
  2. Double-press the Home button to enter multitasking mode. (There doesn't appear to be a button that maps to Home on third-party controllers.)
  3. Swipe left or right to select the app in question.
  4. Swipe up to force quit the app.
  5. Press the Home button again to return to the Home screen.

How to view how much storage space an app is taking up

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Go to General > Manage Storage.
  3. Here you can view all the apps you currently have installed, sorted by most storage used to least storage used. You can also delete any app from this screen by pressing on the Trash icon.

How to delete an app from your Apple TV

  2. Press the Play/Pause button (X on a third-party controller).
  3. Press Delete.
