You can remove installed apps that you no longer want to keep or use, to increase the amount of available memory.
- On the start screen, swipe left to the apps menu.
- Tap and hold the app, and tap uninstall. You may not be able to remove some apps.
If you remove an app, you may be able to reinstall without buying again, as long as the app is available in Store.
If an installed app depends on a removed app, the installed app may stop working. For details, see the user documentation of the installed app.
Tip: Want to keep the app, but running out of free memory on your phone? Move the app to the memory card instead of uninstalling it. Tap storage sense > phone > apps+games, tap , select the apps you want to move, and tap move to SD.
