On iPad – how do I delete apps I no longer want?
With more than half a million applications available on the iTunes App Store, it’s tempting — and easy — to fill up your iPad with apps you use once or twice and quickly lose interest in. Fortunately, Apple makes it easy to delete unwanted apps and free up space for the killer apps you can’t live without.
Make sure the iPad is turned on and unlocked. On the home screen, or the screen containing the app you want to delete, touch and hold your finger on an app until all the apps onscreen start shaking. You’ll see an “X” in the upper left corner of each app. It will look like this:
Touch the “X” on the application you want to delete. A message will appear, asking you to confirm that you want to delete the app. Tap “Delete” to delete the app from your iPad, or “Cancel” to change your mind. Deleting the app also removes all associated data, such as saved games or documents, from your iPad.
When you’re finished deleting apps, press the “Home” button to return to your home screen and stop the icons from wiggling.
If you later change your mind about an application that you’ve deleted, you can redownload it from the App Store without having to pay for it again.
