the apps from the update screen

Delete The old apps you have installed on your iPhone or iPad ($330 at Walmart) never a priority, or at least not for me. I know, I have observed that in the App Store, an app is updated, knowing that I’ll never launch the app again. But because the app is not easy to find on my home screen, I don’t bother to find it and uninstall.

After the Installation of iOS 13, or iPadOS, the next time you see an app you no longer need in the list of Updates, swipe to the left on the list and then tap Delete.


It seemed, it would never happen, but with iOS from Version 13, you can use a mouse to control your iPad or iPhone.
