Deleting an App

You can delete an iPad app similar to how you would move the app. First, tap and hold the icon until all of the icons on the screen are jiggling. This is the “move state”. When in this state, some of the icons will have a black circle at the top with an “x” in the middle.

Simply tap the “x” button to delete an app. Don’t worry about accidentally deleting an app. You can simply re-download any apps associated with your Apple ID from the Purchased section of the App store.  If you got the app from the Filewave portal, you can also re-download the app from there.


What about apps that do not have an “x” button?

You are not allowed to delete the default applications that came installed on your iPad. These include the Calendar, Contacts, iTunes, App Store, Game Center, etc. Parents can remove access to some of these applications by enabling parental controls on your iPad.
