If you have an Android phone, go to Google Play and tap My Apps & Games in the left menu, then select the app you want to remove and click Uninstall. “On Apple devices, it used to be impossible to remove preloaded core apps, like Maps, Notes, and Contacts,” says Rich. But now, with the iOS 10 update, you can delete them the way you would any others: by holding your finger on any app icon until they all start to shake, then pressing the X on the unwanted one. Even nonremovable apps can at least be stored out of sight, in one designated folder on your home screen, says Rich. “To create the new folder, just drag one app on top of another, which automatically makes one,” he says. “You can then enter a name, like ‘Unused Apps.’” Move that folder (by dragging it with your finger to the right) to the very last home screen on your device, then press the Home button to save your changes.
