  3. Tap on Delete on the confirmation pop-up
  4. You can also remove multiple apps. Long press on any open space on your Home Screen, and you’ll see little minus signs to the top left of every icon. Tapping on the minus gives you the same option to delete, without having to long-press on every individual icon.
