Are you tired of all those pre-installed apps on your Android device that you never use? They take up valuable storage space and can slow down your device’s performance.

The good news is that you can uninstall these apps without rooting your device. In this tutorial, we will show you how to do just that.

Method 1: Using the App Drawer

If you’re using a newer version of Android, you can easily uninstall pre-installed apps from the app drawer. Here’s how:

  • Step 1: Open the app drawer on your Android device. This is usually done by tapping the square or circle icon at the bottom of your screen.
  • Step 2: Look for the pre-installed app that you want to uninstall.

    Long-press on its icon until a menu appears.

  • Step 3: Drag the app icon to the “Uninstall” or “Remove” option at the top of your screen and release it.
  • Step 4: A confirmation message will appear asking if you want to uninstall the app. Tap “OK” to proceed.

This method should work for most pre-installed apps on newer Android devices. However, keep in mind that some system apps may not have an uninstall option available.

Method 2: Using Settings

If Method 1 doesn’t work for a specific pre-installed app, you can try using the Settings menu to uninstall it. Here’s how:

  • Step 1: Open the Settings app on your Android device. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping the gear icon.
  • Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “Apps” or “Applications”, depending on your device.
  • Step 3: Look for the pre-installed app that you want to uninstall and tap on it.
  • Step 4: On the app info page, tap on “Uninstall” or “Disable”.

    If the option is grayed out, it means that you can’t uninstall or disable the app.

  • Step 5: A confirmation message will appear asking if you want to uninstall the app.

This method allows you to access more detailed information about each app and gives you the option to disable it if uninstalling is not possible. Keep in mind that disabling an app will prevent it from running, but it will still take up storage space on your device.

In conclusion

By following these methods, you can easily uninstall pre-installed apps on your Android device without rooting it. This will help free up storage space and improve overall performance. However, be cautious when uninstalling system apps as they may be required for certain features or functionalities of your device.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful. Enjoy a clutter-free Android experience!
