How do I delete an app?

  • Hold down on your screen where the app icon is located, but don't force touch if you have an iPhone 6+. You just need to hold down, don't put more force otherwise it will be mistaken for a 3D Touch. Click The 'x' after you have done that and select delete.

  • Tap and hold the app you want to delete, until the apps start to shake and the X pop out on the top of the apps. Press the X and delete.

  • Press and hold on the app and the apps will start shaking. Press the x in the top right corner of the app and a message will pop up, warning you about deleting the app. if you want to delete it, click the delete button and it will be deleted.

    (Note that this is for ios 10. I believe that other firmwares are like this too but just an FYI).

  • Hold your finger on the app icon you want to delete until the icon begins to shake. You should see a small X in the top left corner of the app icon as it shakes. Press the X and it should remove it. Then press your log in button at the bottom of the phone and it should stop shaking and go back to normal.
