It’s possible to remove applications once you no longer need it from either your iPhone or iPad. This is very simple to do, and necessary if you are a iPhone app download junkie. It is also particularly useful if you don’t use folders. Removing them is very easy, thank’s to Apple’s way of thinking!
- Hold your finger over the application you wish to remove until it starts to ‘giggle’ you will see a small ‘X’ to the left of the icon tap it you will then see this message: “Deleting this application will also delete it’s data”
- Select ‘delete’ to remove the application from your device. It really is that simple, remember if you remove an application from your iPhone or iPad you are also deleting the associated data, as per the above alert. It’s always a good idea to sync apps you have bought first with iTunes, but of course you can always re-download them for free once you have bought them!
- Note: If your are in the process of downloading a large application such as a graphics intensive game, which you no longer want, and it is not finished downloading, you can use the same above process to cancel the download/install!
