iPhone, Tutorials

Are you looking to free up some space on your iPhone? Deleting unnecessary apps is a great way to do just that. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of deleting an app on your iPhone.

Step 1: Locate the App

First, let’s find the app you want to delete. Look for its icon on your home screen or swipe right to access the App Library.

Step 2: Long Press the App Icon

Once you have located the app, long press its icon until a menu appears. This works for all iPhones with iOS 13 or later.

Step 3: Tap ‘Delete App’

In the menu that appears, tap on the option that says ‘Delete App’. A confirmation pop-up will appear asking if you want to delete the app.


  • You can also choose to ‘Offload App’ instead of deleting it completely. Offloading an app removes it from your device but keeps its data intact. You can reinstall it later without losing any settings or data.
  • If you don’t see the ‘Delete App’ option, it means that the app is a built-in Apple app and cannot be deleted.

Step 4: Confirm Deletion

If you are sure about deleting the app, tap ‘Delete’. Otherwise, tap outside of the pop-up or select ‘Cancel’ to keep the app on your device.


  • If you change your mind after deleting an app, don’t worry! You can always re-download it from the App Store.

Step 5: App Deletion Complete!

Once you have confirmed the deletion, the app will be removed from your iPhone. You will no longer see its icon on your home screen or in the App Library.

Congratulations! You have successfully deleted an app from your iPhone. Repeat these steps for any other apps you wish to remove.


Deleting apps on your iPhone is a simple process that can help you declutter and optimize your device’s storage. Remember, you can always reinstall apps if needed. Now go ahead and free up some space on your iPhone!
