– You need a computer and USB cable to use this method, which may not be convenient for some users.
– This method can be complicated for users who are not familiar with iTunes.
Why Can’t I Delete Certain Apps?
There are several reasons why an app may be difficult or impossible to delete. Here are three common reasons:
1. The app is a built-in app that came with your iPhone and cannot be deleted.
2. The app is currently in use or being updated.
3. There is a restriction or parental control setting on your device that is preventing the deletion of the app.
Fortunately, there are solutions to each of these issues:
1. You can hide built-in apps that can’t be deleted. To do this, go to the Settings app, then the "General" tab, and click on "Restrictions." From there, you can turn off the option for any app you wish to hide.
2. If the app is currently being updated or in use, try deleting it later or restarting your iPhone and trying again later.
3. Remove any restriction or parental control settings that are preventing the app from being deleted. Go to the Settings app, then the "General" tab, and click on "Restrictions." From there, you can turn off any settings that may be preventing the app from being deleted.
