How to Delete Ipad Apps in Three Simple Steps

  1. Put your finger on the app you want to delete. Hold it there until all the apps start shaking. This is your sign that the apps can now be manipulated — either moved around or deleted.
  2. While the apps are shaking, there will be an “X” in the middle of a circle in the top-left corner of the app icon. This is the delete/uninstall button. 
  3. Simply click the “X”. You’ll be asked to verify if you want to delete the app. Make sure it’s the right app and then hit “Delete,” and you’re done!

This is also the way to move apps around on your iPad if so desired. Click the Home button to restore all the apps to the normal use mode.

This method will work with most apps on your iPad, including the apps that came on your iPad. There are apps that cannot be uninstalled, which you probably wouldn’t want to uninstall anyways, that are vital to the functionality of your iPad. Some of these include Safari, Settings, and the App Store, which is what generates your system updates. If you want to take away access such as for your kids, you would simply initiate parental restrictions in General Settings and then in Restrictions.
