Got a cluttered iPhone 15 and need to free up some space or just tired of that game you never play? Deleting apps from your iPhone 15 is a breeze and can be done in just a few taps.

Step by Step Tutorial: How to Delete Apps on iPhone 15

Before we dive into the nitty-gritty, let’s understand what we’re trying to achieve here. Deleting apps can help free up storage space, declutter your home screen, and even save battery life. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Locate the App You Want to Delete

Find the app icon on your home screen.
Once you’ve found the app you want to say goodbye to, simply press and hold the app icon. This will trigger a quick action menu.

Step 2: Select "Remove App" from the Quick Action Menu

Tap on "Remove App" from the options that appear.
After you press and hold the app icon, a menu will pop up with several options. You’ll want to tap "Remove App." This won’t immediately delete the app, but it will take you to the next step.

Step 3: Confirm Deletion

Confirm the deletion by tapping "Delete App" in the confirmation dialogue.
A confirmation dialogue will appear, ensuring you’re absolutely sure about your decision to delete the app. If you’re ready to say farewell, tap "Delete App." If you have second thoughts, tap "Cancel."

After completing these steps, the app will vanish from your home screen and be uninstalled from your iPhone 15. You’ll instantly see more space available and a less cluttered home screen.
