Has someone asked you how many apps are installed on your iPhone, and you don’t want to count them yourself? Or are you simply curious about how many you have installed over the period of time that you have owned your iPhone? Apple keeps track of this information, and it is displayed on a screen that contains some other useful information as well.
The guide below will show you where to navigate in your iPhone Settings menu to find the number of third-party apps that are installed on your iPhone and help to answer your question.
Find the Number of Installed Apps in iOS 9
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 6 Plus, in iOS 9.1. These same steps will also work for other iPhone models running most versions of iOS.
Note that in the screen where you will ultimately find the number of installed apps, you can also see how many songs, videos, and pictures are on your iPhone as well. If you think any of these numbers might be too high, then you may want to start deleting some files from your iPhone.
- Open the Settings menu.
- Scroll down and select the General option.
- Tap the About button at the top of the screen.
- Locate the Applications row in this table. The number to the right of Applications is the number of apps that are installed on your iPhone. This number does not include any of the default apps that were installed on your iPhone when you first got it, nor does it include any Web page links that you have saved to your Home screen.
Is the number of apps installed on your iPhone too high, and you are ready to start getting rid of some of them? Learn how to delete an app from your iPhone and use that storage space for something new.
