Deleting an App on the iPad 2 in iOS 7

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.
