There are over one million apps in Apple’s App Store and they offer a solution for pretty much anything you can think about. It is tempting to download tons of apps but it is very unlikely that you get to use them all on a regular basis. It is advisable that you remove those apps that you don’t use or intend to use. At first glance, deleting apps from your iPhone or iPad sounds like a simple task and you may think that listing steps on how to do it is pointless. Of course, you can delete apps by pressing the icon of the app that you wish to delete and then tapping on the delete option. However, that is not the only way to get rid of apps that you do not want to use anymore and if you need to remove multiple apps, it is not the most practical option. We will present you an effective and fast method that you can use when you want to delete several apps at the time. This is what you need to do to a massive app clean up on your iOS device.
To get started, let’s go through the process to delete individual apps again:
1. Tap the icon of the app you wan to delete and keep it pressed until it starts flickering.
2. An x mark will appear at the upper left corner of each icon. Tap on it to delete the app.
3. You will be asked to confirm if you wish to delete the app. Select Delete to remove the app from your device.
Now, to get into details on how to delete multiple apps, the first thing you need to do is to identify the apps that you want to get rid of. This can be done easily and fast by following the below steps.
1. Go to Settings, then General and the go to Usage.
2. You will see a list of all the apps that are installed on your device.
This is a convenient way to know exactly what is on your iPhone or iPad and to find out how much storage space is being taken by each app. The apps are listed according to the amount of storage space that they take on the device. In front of each app, you will see the space used by it. Accessing Usage is the most convenient way to get visibility to all the apps installed on your device. You will be able to see details of all the apps that you have on your iPad/iPhone without having to go through different folders.
Once you have identified the apps that are just wasting space on your iPhone or iPad, the next step is to delete them. For this, you can simply scroll through the list of apps installed and tap on Delete App. While this will still require individual deletion of apps, it will make things easier and will take less time since you will have a full list of apps available in one place.
