1/10/1111:04 am Forum Question: Can’t uninstall app on Iphone 4 The icons will all giggle, but I don’t get any X’s(4.2.1) —– drt Comments: 11 Responses to “Can’t uninstall app on Iphone 4” Gary Rosenzweig 1/10/11 @ 11:07 am Are those the default apps, by any chance (Stocks, Weather, Notes, YouTube, etc)? Those cannot be uninstalled. Only apps that you added to your iPhone can be uninstalled. drt 1/10/11 @ 12:25 pm Any apps at all: default or added Gary Rosenzweig 1/10/11 @ 12:26 pm I’ve never seen that happen for non-default apps. Did you try a restart? How about removing them using iTunes on your Mac while synced? drt 1/10/11 @ 12:30 pm I can’t sync to my old Mac (10.4.11) Restart didn’t help Gary Rosenzweig 1/10/11 @ 12:50 pm I think you need at least Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) to sync an iPhone. drt 1/10/11 @ 12:55 pm Correct. It does allow me to offload photos to Iphoto. I get by without the rest of it. Gary Rosenzweig 1/10/11 @ 12:56 pm So you’ve never synced or backed up your iPhone? I guess not, if you haven’t every connected to iTunes on your Mac. I guess if you don’t have anything important on the phone… Boaz 7/2/11 @ 2:07 am I have the same problem. I have deleted some through iTunes, but that’s a nag. Didn’t try to restore from backup yet. Can I do it without upgrading to 4.3.3? I have 4.3.1 with jailbreak. Matt 7/29/11 @ 8:58 pm Go to Settings–restrictions. Under Deleting Apps: turn ON. Go back to main screen, hold down app icon till it wiggles and hit the x button vida 5/16/12 @ 2:56 am i hold down app for 5min!but i cant see x.i cant unistall app such as game,software that i add them to my iphone.plz help me.tanx Gary Rosenzweig 5/16/12 @ 6:49 am You should just need to do it for 3 seconds. Not sure why it isn’t working for you. Maybe a visit to the Genius Bar will help. Comments Closed.
