Brand new to iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, downloaded a few apps and games, and curious how to delete the ones you no longer use? It may not be obvious at first but once you learn how, it's really simple. We'll show you after the break!
To delete an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad app:
- Touch and hold your finger down on the app until it goes into "Jiggly Mode" (starts to dance around).
- Look for the small X badge at the top left of the app you want to delete
- Tap the small X badge
- A dialog box will pop up identifying the name of the app you're about to delete and warning you that you'll delete all the data in the app as well (your account login, game progress, etc.)
- If you're sure, tap Delete (if you're not, tap Cancel)
- If you decide not to delete an app, tap the Home Button to exit Jiggly Mode
That's it, your app is deleted! If you want to delete more apps, just tap their X badges in the same manner. Yes we know this tip is very basic but we need to help out new users too.
