Installing an app on your iPad 2 is a really easy thing to do and, often, is completely free. But there is a huge library of apps in the App Store, and not all of them are good or particularly useful. So you may find that you aren’t using an app anymore, or that it wasn’t for you. Therefore that app is just taking up space on your device, which is something that is a precious commodity when you are talking about only 16, 32 or 64 GB of storage. Luckily you can delete apps on the iPad 2 to free up some space for new apps, songs or videos.

Almost every app that you download from the App Store can be deleted, but there are some default apps which cannot be removed.

So with that in mind, follow the tutorial below to learn how to uninstall an app from your iPad 2.
Step 1: Locate the app that you want to remove from your iPad. In the example below, I am going to remove the Uno app.
Step 2: Touch and hold your finger on the app icon until it starts to shake.
Step 3: Touch the x at the upper-left corner of the app icon.
Step 4: Touch the Delete button to delete the app and remove its’ data.
