Uninstall apps from iPad desktop

The iOS operating system allows you to remove installed applications directly from the desktop. This method of removal is the most convenient and fast, so in most cases they use it.

Also, iOS provides the ability to delete applications through the iPad Settings. To do this, open the Settings app and go to the iPad Storage section.

Note that in some cases this section of the settings may be called “Use storage and iCloud”), and in older versions of iOS (prior to iOS 9), you need to go to the “Statistics” section.

In the iPad Storage section, you need to wait a bit while the list of installed applications loads. After the applications have appeared, find the one you want to delete and click on it.

As a result, a window opens with information about the selected application. Here you will find the size of the application, as well as the volume of documents and data that relate to this application. In order to remove this application, click on the “Uninstall a program” button.

Uninstall apps through iTunes

In an extreme case, iPad apps can be removed through iTunes. To do this, you need to connect the iPad to the computer, launch iTunes and click on the device icon, which should appear in the upper left corner of the window.

This will take you to iPad settings in iTunes. To uninstall applications, you need to go to the "Programs" section, the link to which is on the left side of the window.

As a result, a window with the desktops of your iPad should appear. Here, with a double click you need to open one of the desktops.

Then move the cursor to the application and click on the delete button.

After that, the icon of the selected application will disappear from the desktop. Now it remains only to confirm the action using the "Finish" button at the bottom of the iTunes window and the application will be deleted from your iPad.
