The default apps on an iPhone have long been a source of frustration for iPhone users that don’t have enough space. The apps could not be deleted, which usually left you in a situation where you had to hide them in folders.
Fortunately the release of iOS 10 has allowed for these apps to be deleted, which can remove some Home screen clutter, and free up some of your storage space. One of the default apps, GarageBand, takes up a lot of that space. Our guide below will show you how to delete the GarageBand app from your iPhone 7 in the iOS 10 operating system.
Removing the GarageBand App in iOS 10
The steps in this article are going to delete the default Garageband app that came with your iPhone 7. These steps were performed on an iPhone running the iOS 10 operating system. This option is not available in earlier versions of iOS. If you decide later that you want the GarageBand app back, you can go to the App Store, search for it, and download it again.
Step 1: Locate the GarageBand app icon on your Home screen. Note that you may need to swipe left or right if it is not on the active Home screen.
Step 2: Tap and hold on the GarageBand app icon for a few seconds, until a small x appears at the top-left corner of the icon.
Step 3: Tap the red Delete button to confirm that you wish to remove the app from your device.
