Why Can't I Delete Apps on My iPhone 13/14?

Christina updated on 2022/1/29 to iPhone Data Transfer

In daily life, we often want to delete the app because the phone memory is insufficient or the app has not been used for a long time. Still, we often encounter that the app on the iPhone cannot be deleted. We can try to fix the issue:

Method One: Re-download and Delete the App

  1. Update or re-download the app and then try to delete it.
  2. Restart the phone and try again.

Method Two: Check the Anti-deletion Function

Check whether the anti-deletion function is turned on. If it is turned off, turn on this function.

  1. On this menu page, find "Settings" and open it.
  2. Click "General."
  3. Find "Access Restrictions" to open.

Method Three: Go to iPhone Storage Space and Delete App

  1. Enter the home screen of the iPhone and find the "Settings" function as shown in the figure;
  2. In the "Settings" interface, find and enter the "General" option;
  3. Pull the "General" interface to the middle and click to enter "iPhone Storage";
  4. In "iPhone storage space," you can see the space occupied by the software installed on the phone. Click to enter the application you want to delete. Here is "Calendar" as an example;
  5. In the application, "Uninstall the application" deletes the storage space occupied by the application and will keep the documents and data, but "Delete the application" will clear all the software and data. Click the red word "Delete the application";
  6. A confirmation dialog box will appear at the bottom of the phone screen. After deleting the app, the operation cannot be undone. If you want to know that you need to delete the app, traces of use, and historical data, please click the red word "Delete App" again to complete.

  1. First, please find the [Settings] icon on your mobile phone and click to enter the main interface.
  2. Next, please click the [Screen Time] item.
  3. We need to select [Content and Privacy Access Restrictions] on the [Screen Time] page.
  4. Next, select the item [iTunes Store and App Store] pointed to by the arrow on the screen.
  5. We found that [Not Allowed] is displayed after [Delete Application]. Please click this option.
  6. Finally, after completing the above steps, please click the [Allow] item on the [Delete Application] page to complete the operation.

If the above methods fail to delete, please seek third-party iPhone data removal software to delete the application permanently.
