How to Uninstall Apps on the iPad and iPhone

When you no longer need an app on the iPad or iPHone, you can uninstall it. You can do this either from the device itself, by using iTunes, or by using iPhone Configuration Utility.

How to uninstall apps directly from the iPad or iPhone

In Many cases, the easiest way to uninstall an app is directly on the iPad or iPhone. Follow these steps:

1. Press the Home button to display the Home screen.

4. Touch the X circle to delete the app. iOS displays a confirmation dialog box to make sure.

5. Touch the Delete button to delete the app.

6. Delete other apps as necessary, and then press the Home button to stop the apps jiggling.

How to uninstall apps using iTunes

When you need to uninstall several apps at once, you may find it easier to use iTunes than to work directly on the iPad or iPhone. Follow these steps:

3. Click the iPad’s or iPhones entry in the Devices category in the Source list to display the device’s control screens.

4. Click the Apps tab to display its contents.

5. In the list of apps, clear the check box for each app  you want to remove.
