how to delete a hidden app on iphone

iOS is a complex operating system. Even some of the most experienced users get confused about how to use it. One way that you can learn how to use your iPhone is by downloading apps from the app store. It’s important to note that there are a lot of apps available for download, and many of them are free. However, sometimes, you might want to find an app that isn’t in the app store and delete it from your phone completely. If this is what you want, then here’s how you do it!

How To Delete A Hidden App On Your iPhone?

1. Turn on your iPhone.

2. Go to Settings.

3. Tap on General, then go to the “Storage & iCloud Usage” section.

4. Tap on the “Manage Storage” button under the “Storage & iCloud Usage” section.

5. After you’ve done that, scroll down and tap on the “Manage Apps” button in the bottom left corner of the screen.

6. On your iPhone, tap and hold on to an app you want to delete from your phone and then tap on “Delete”.

7. Wait for your iPhone to delete the app from your phone or tablet completely (usually a few seconds). You can also check if it’s deleted by going back into Settings –> General –> Storage & iCloud Usage –> Manage Storage –> App Storage –> All Apps –> tap and hold an app that you deleted and see if it’s gone!

8. Now that you’ve deleted a hidden app, open up Settings again and go into General –> Storage & iCloud Usage again and find out which apps are still available for download in this storage section of settings! If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below in our comment section!

How To Delete An App From Your iTunes

1. On your iPhone, tap the “Settings” icon, then tap “General,” and finally, scroll down to the section labeled “Storage & iCloud Usage.”

2. Tap on “Manage Storage” in the bottom-left corner of the screen.

3. In the list that appears, scroll down until you find an app that you want to remove from your iPhone or iPad. Tap it once to select it and then tap the red minus button on its right-hand side. A pop-up window will appear asking you if you are sure that you want to delete the app. Tap Delete and wait for it to finish removing it from your device.

What’s The Difference Between Deleting Apps From Your Phone And Deleting Them From iTunes

1. Deleting apps from your phone is permanent – once you delete an app, it’s gone for good. You won’t be able to download it again or restore it.

2. Deleting apps from iTunes is not permanent – you can always grab the app again from your iTunes account and install it on your iPhone again. You just have to make sure that there’s no copy of the app already installed on your iPhone or iPad.

3. Deleting apps from iTunes also doesn’t remove them from your computer – you can still access the app in iTunes and restore it to your phone if you so desire (although this will take a long time).

How To Make App Hidden

1. Tap on Settings

2. Scroll down and tap on General

3. Scroll down and tap on Restrictions

4. Scroll down and tap on the option to enable Restrictions

5. Scroll down and tap on the option to enable Restrictions for Apps that can make phone calls

6. Tap on Notifications so that it turns green (green means enabled)

7. Find the app that you want to delete and click “Edit”

8. Scroll all the way down so that you’re at “Status”

9. Enter “Hidden” in the Status field

10. Press “Done”

Benefits Of Hiding An App In iPhone

1. You can hide apps that you don’t use. For example, you can hide an app that you never use on your iPhone, because it consumes data and doesn’t bring any benefit to your phone.

2. You can hide apps that you want to remove from your iPhone, but still, keep them on iTunes. For example, if you’ve purchased an app on iTunes but no longer want to use it, you can hide it here so that in the future when you want to install the app again on your iPhone or iPad, it will still be available in iTunes.

3. Hiding apps on iPhones will also help protect children as they won’t be able to find some adult-oriented apps easily. They may not be able to find them at all since they’re hidden in the App Store or hidden under Restrictions.

4. Hiding apps also helps avoid having too many unnecessary apps on your iPhone, which may slow down the performance of your phone and eat up lots of memory space; this is especially important if you have a limited amount of internal storage space on your device (such as 16GB).
