  • To delete an app, tap the little ‘X’ cross mark on the top left of the app.

  • A prompt will appear that will ask for delete confirmation. Tap ‘Delete’.

3. From iTunes on your Windows Computer or Mac OS X

When you delete an app from your iPhone, it is deleted from your device but it is retained in your iTunes library. The apps won’t sync back to your phone but they still take up space. If you wish to delete an app completely (from iPhone as well as iTunes), follow the following steps:

  • Launch iTunes from your computer system.

  • Click on ‘Apps’ to view your list of apps.

  • Here, look for the app that you want to delete.

  • Once you’ve found the app(s) that you wish to delete. You can delete it in two different ways:

  • Click on the app to select it, then press the ‘Delete’ key on your keyboard.

  • Right click on the app and select the ‘Delete’ option by clicking on it.

  • Once you’ve given the command to delete, you will be prompted with a dialogue box asking you to ‘Keep App’ or ‘Move to Trash’. If you wish to completely remove the app, click on the Move to Trash option. Else, if you wish to keep a copy of the app (and data) on your computer, select Keep App (this will remove the app from iTunes but save a copy on your computer).

4. When Apps are Updating

The other way of removing apps from the iTunes library is to remove them when they are updating. Follow the steps given below to delete an app from iTunes using this method:

  • Launch iTunes on your computer.

  • Click on ‘Apps’ to view your app list.

  • Once here, click on the ‘Updates’ tab to show the Updates Window.

  • Now you’ll be able to see a list of the apps that have been recently updated.

  • Here, you can look for the app that you want to delete.

  • Once you’ve found the app that you want to delete, right click on the app and select ‘Delete’.

  • Once again, you’ll be prompted with a dialog box showing the choice of keeping the app on your computer or deleting it completely (as in the previous method). Choose the option you want by clicking on it.

That’s it! Your app will be deleted from iTunes and it will automatically be deleted from your iPhone the next time it syncs with iTunes.

Conclusion

Although these are four different ways of deleting the application but the easiest way of deleting the application on your iPhone is using the Tap and Delete option. Moreover, deleting an app from iPhone follows the syncing process and deleting the application using sync will take a much longer time. Which method did you use to delete the Application?
