In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of deleting apps on your iPhone 11. Whether you want to remove pre-installed apps or those downloaded from the App Store, we’ve got you covered.

Deleting Apps from Home Screen

If you want to delete an app from your home screen, follow these simple steps:

  1. Locate the App: Find the app you wish to delete on your home screen.
  2. Long Press: Press and hold down on the app icon until it starts shaking.
  3. “X” Mark: Look for a small “X” mark appearing on the top-left corner of the app icon.
  4. Delete Confirmation: Tap on the “X” mark and a confirmation message will pop up.
  5. Delete App: Select “Delete” to remove the app from your iPhone.

Deleting Apps from Settings

If you prefer to delete apps using your device settings, here’s how:

  1. Open Settings: Locate and tap on the “Settings” icon on your home screen.
  2. General Settings: Scroll down and select “General.”
  3. iPhone Storage or iPad Storage: Tap on “iPhone Storage” (or “iPad Storage” if using an iPad).
  4. List of Apps: You should see a list of all installed apps. Wait for it to load completely.
  5. Select the App: Find the app you want to remove and tap on it.
  6. Delete App: Tap on “Delete App” and confirm your decision when prompted.

Deleting Pre-installed Apps

While you can’t delete certain pre-installed apps, you can hide them from your home screen. Here’s how:

  1. Long Press: Press and hold down on any app icon until they start shaking.
  2. Hide App: Tap on the “X” mark, and a confirmation message will pop up.
  3. Cancel Deletion: Instead of deleting, select “Cancel” or press the home button to stop the deletion process.


Remember that deleting an app will also delete its data and settings. However, if you decide to reinstall it in the future, you can still access your previous data if it’s associated with your account or stored in iCloud. Additionally, some apps may not be eligible for deletion due to system restrictions.

Now that you know how to delete apps on your iPhone 11, feel free to declutter your device and make more room for the apps that matter most to you! Happy organizing!
