How To Uninstall an App

Dear Computer Lady,

How do I uninstall an app from my iPad? I have tried a few apps that I don’t like and I don’t want them on here any more.

Thanks, Harold

Dear Harold,

To remove an app from your iPad, just follow these directions:

1. Press and hold your finger on the icon for your app until the icon starts to wiggle.

2. Remove your finger from the icon and you will see a small X in the corner of the icon.

3. Tap the X to uninstall your app.

4. Press the home button on your iPad once to stop all the icons from wiggling.
