iOS: How to Delete Installed Apps From Your iPhone or iPad

delete app through app store

The most common method of deleting apps is to long press the app icon and select delete. But now there’s a new way to delete installed apps, in a place you might not think to look.

App Store

You can now delete your apps right from within the App Store.

  1. Open the App Store.
  2. Tap on your profile photo in the upper right. This is the area in which you update apps in iOS 13.
  3. You can also delete apps here, simply by swiping to the left and tapping Delete.

This method is nice because iOS doesn’t give you a way to find out which apps you haven’t used in a while. It’s up to you to remember. But if you see an update for an app and think, “I haven’t used that in a while, maybe I should delete it.” Now you can right from the update section.
