How to Delete a Downloaded Amazon Movie on the iPhone

The Amazon Instant app only allows you to stream movies through its iOS app when you are connected to Wi-Fi. Therefore you will need to download a movie to your device if you want to view it in a place where you will not have Wi-Fi.

But these downloaded video files can be quite large, so you may find that you want to delete them later in order to free up some space for another movie or app. This guide will show you how you can delete an Amazon Instant movie through the app.
