If you’re anything like us, owning iPhones for the last few years has resulted in a massive hoard of apps on your device. You could use iOS’ built-in workflows to delete or offload apps one by one from your iPhone or iPad, but uninstalling them individually is very tedious to do for dozens of apps.

Enter Manage Apps!

Here's how your can easily delete multiple apps from your iPhone, iPad or iPod in one go:

  1. Launch iMazing and connect your device to your Mac or PC.
  2. Select your device in the sidebar
  3. Open Manage Apps and click on the Device tab
  4. Select the apps you want to delete and click Uninstall

Before you begin

Download and install iMazing on your Mac or PC computer.

4. Select one or more apps from the list and click Uninstall

After clicking Uninstall at the bottom right corner of the list, iMazing will ask you to confirm that you really want to delete your selection. If you don't want to see this message each time you can check Apply to All and confirm.

Notice how iMazing displays the total space occupied by selected apps in the upper-right corner of the list. This allows you to easily find out how much space will be freed up off your device.
