How to Easily Delete Apps on your iPhone

Keeping your iPhone in top shape often includes deleting apps that you no longer use. This helps your phone run faster and smoother while freeing up valuable storage space. If you’re not sure on how to delete apps from your iPhone, it actually isn’t too difficult.

This article will explain how to quickly and easily delete a single app or multiple apps from your iPhone in just a few simple steps. With these instructions, you can quickly regain storage space while making your iPhone run faster and smoother.

Step 1: Locate and Tap the App on Your Home Screen

In order to delete an app from your iPhone, the first thing that you have to do is locate the app you wish to delete. To do this, simply swipe left or right on the home screen of your iPhone. The app you want to delete will be visible in the list of apps.

Once you find the app you wish to delete, all you have to do is tap and hold on the app icon. After a few moments, the app icon will start to shake or wiggle, which indicates that the app is now in edit mode.

Step 2: Press and Hold on the App until it Wiggles

Step 2: Press and Hold on the App until it Wiggles

In order to delete an app, the app has to be in the ‘wiggle’ mode. To get the app into this mode, you will need to press and hold down on your app until it wiggles. Usually you can tell that the app is successfully wiggling if all other apps on your screen become dim and there is an ‘X’ icon on the upper lefthand side of your app.

Note that if you press and hold too quickly, you can accidentally enter the ‘jiggling’ mode, which is commonly confused with the ‘wiggling’ mode. To enter the ‘wiggling’ mode, press and hold down on the app until it wiggles, allow for some time for the app to wiggle and then the other apps on the screen should dim.

Step 3: Tap the X Button to Delete the App

After you’ve selected the app you want to delete, the next step is to tap the X button. You can typically only find the X button on the app icon, as it’s not available via searching the Home Screen. Once the X button appears, simply tap it to delete the app.

You’ll be asked to either keep or delete the app. Tap the ‘Delete‘ button if you’re sure that you want to delete the app. The process of uninstalling an app from your iPhone may take a few moments, so be patient as your device completes the process.


Deleting and uninstalling apps on an iPhone is a simple process that shouldn’t take very long. If you follow the steps listed in this article, you should be able to easily delete any app from your iPhone. Additionally, if you’re running into any problems while attempting to delete an app, you can contact Apple support for further guidance.

For those who wish to stay organized, deleting apps is a great way to declutter the home screen of their iPhones. By following the above steps, you can quickly delete any app that you don’t find useful or no longer use. Enjoy the freedom of cleansing your home screen from any unused apps!
