How to Get Rid of App Library on Your iPhone

If you’re wondering how to remove an app from your iPhone’s app library, it’s actually a quick and easy process. In this article, we’ll guide you through the steps to remove apps from your app library.

First off, if you swipe left on your screen, you’ll see your app library, which shows every app that’s installed on your iPhone. If you want to remove a particular app from it, simply tap and hold on the app icon, and then hit “remove app.” You’ll then be given the option to either “remove from home screen” or “delete app.” Depending on your settings, deleting the app may or may not remove it from your app library.

If the app is still showing up in your app library, you need to change your settings. Go to your iPhone’s “Settings” and scroll down until you find “Screen Time” and tap on it. From there, go to “Content & Privacy Restrictions” and then “iTunes & App Store Purchases.” You’ll need to enter your screen time password to access this menu. If you don’t know the password, you should ask the person who set it up or try to guess it.

Once you’re inside the “iTunes & App Store Purchases” menu, you’ll see the option “Deleting Apps.” If this option is set to “Don’t Allow,” you won’t be able to delete apps from your iPhone. To change this, simply tap on “Deleting Apps” and then hit “Allow.” This will enable you to delete apps from your iPhone completely.

We hope this guide helps you remove unwanted apps from your iPhone’s app library. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments below.
