What to do if you can’t delete an app from iPhone


Deleting an app is the easiest way to free up some storage on your iPhone. This is more efficient than downloading it, and it also helps to clean up the system if the home screen is littered with shortcuts. Recently, you can remove any application from the iPhone, even the App Store or Calls. But what if the usual downloaded application or game is not deleted or there are problems in the process? There are several working methods that will help you deal with this.

Usually, the application is deleted directly from the home screen: just a long press to call up the context menu and click “Delete”. But if the option is not displayed, you can try to do it differently.


Can’t uninstall app on iPhone

The first thing you should do when you can’t remove an app from your iPhone is to check Screen Time. It would seem, what does the function of counting the time of using the iPhone have to do with it? The fact is that there is an item that restricts the deletion of applications from the iPhone. Try turning it off.

  • Go to Settings.
  • Select Screen Time.
  • Go to “Content and Privacy”.
  • Select iTunes & App Store Purchases.
  • Click Uninstall Apps and select Yes.
  • After that, go to the Home screen and try to uninstall the app to see if the problem is gone.

How to disable Screen Time

If this method doesn’t work, try temporarily turning off Screen Time and uninstalling unnecessary apps. It is done like this:

  • Go to Settings.
  • Select Screen Time.
  • At the very bottom, click Turn off Screen Time.
  • Try uninstalling the app again. Should help.

How to remove an application that is not on iPhone

With the advent of the Application Library, users have the opportunity to leave only those icons on the home screen that they need. Sometimes apps appear on the iPhone from somewhere that, it seems, have not been around for a long time. We figure out where they come from and how to remove them.

  • To get started, go to Settings.
  • Select Home Screen.
  • Tap Home Screen if you want the app to remain on both the home screen and the app library after downloading.
  • Select “App Library Only” if you don’t want to clutter your home screen with unnecessary apps.

It is for this reason that the memory of your iPhone may become clogged, and applications cannot be found. After that, exit to the home screen, swipe it to the left until the application library appears, go through the list and delete the excess. If the app is not on the Home screen, simply find it in the list, long press to bring up the menu, and tap Add to Home Screen.

How to uninstall an app through iPhone Settings

If for some reason you can’t remove the application from the home screen , then this can always be done through Settings. At the same time, look at how much space the cache of this application takes up.

  • Go to Settings.
  • Select iPhone Storage.
  • Then, in the list, select the desired application and click on it: select “Uninstall application”.
  • The top of the screen will display the size of the app itself and the size of the data it contains.

You can also uninstall the app via Spotlight search , avoiding the App Library and Settings. Just swipe the home screen down and enter the name of the application in the search bar, then long press to bring up the menu and click “Delete”.

App won’t uninstall from iPhone

Another way: you can uninstall an app from iPhone through the App Store . The Apple App Store also implements this feature.

  • Go to the App Store.
  • Click on your profile icon and scroll down to the list of available updates.
  • Find the application you want and swipe it to the left: the “Delete” button will appear on the right.
  • Click on it to uninstall the app.

Why can’t I delete apps from my iPhone?

Sometimes you can’t uninstall an app from your iPhone due to an Apple ID account error. Don’t worry, try logging out and back in again.

  • Open Settings and go to Apple ID at the top.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the list and click Sign Out.
  • Then try logging into your account again.

In addition, it is worth recalling that standard applications are not deleted from the iPhone . We are talking about “Messages”, Settings or the App Store. Yes, they can be removed from the Home screen, but they remain in the App Library, from where they can be returned back .
