All the new Apple iPhone owners and even the ones that always go for Apple iPhones ask the following question A LOT… how to delete apps on iPhone?? We all hate having those annoying app icons on our phone screens that we never use, or maybe used them once or twice when we downloaded those apps in the start or maybe because we saw that on a friend’s phone and wanted to use it ourselves but got bored with them quickly. Now, the problem with these apps is not only that they take space on your phone screen, they also in fact, take space in your phone’s storage and a full memory storage can either make your phone get stuck too often or even get slow.

If you look at your iPhone screen right now, you will find a game or two, or maybe one of those utility or entertainment apps that you don’t use anymore and are most probably not going to use in the future either… well, what are you waiting for? Get rid of them!! Now, again going back to the question, how to delete apps from iPhone? Well, there are a couple of ways you can do this task and they are pretty simple.

The first two methods can be used to directly delete the app using only your iPhone.
