I’ve been using my iPhone 5 for a while. But lately I found that when the icons are pressed and held down for seconds, there is no "X" showing up any more. But, they still "wiggle" and I am able to move them. Any way I can deal with this?
Yes, indeed. Read through this guide and you’ll know it. We provide you the best way to delete apps on iPhone permanently. All you need to do are downloading a program and doing a few clicks with your mouse.
iPhone Data Eraser is the one mentioned above. It can remove any junk files including unwanted apps on iPhone 5s/5c/5/4s/4 and other iDevices. More importantly, the data that are cleaned up by this application can never be recovered, even with iPhone Data Recovery.
Note: Please perform a backup of the device before you get started to delete the contents. Once erasure is done, you can never find back the old data.
Step 1.Connect iPhone 5 to PC Once iOS Data Eraser is Set up
First, you need to click the corresponding button above to have the software in your computer. And then open it. When that is done, plug the phone in. You might need to tap "Trust" on the iPhone screen if the interface says "Failed to connect".
The information of your device—the name, the version of iOS and others, will be displayed.
Step 2.Make Sure that You Want to Delete All the Apps
See that side bar on the left? The fifth one-"Erase All Data" would be your choice. Once again, you should know that this software erase not only iPhone apps but also other things like system settings, so do remember to back up your device. Now, enter the word "delete" as is prompted. And press the "Erase Now" button.
Note: By default, the security level is set at "Medium". You can also change it.
Step 3.Wait for Apps Erasure to End
In this step, all you do is waiting. Isn’t that easy? Just do other things you want while iOS Data Eraser is on going. The process is as the following:
Wipe your songs, movies, setting and any other data.
iPhone shuts down and start again, being prepared for the next move.
iOS Data Eraser writes over the free space with random data, so as to make the erasure untraceable. You can always choose to "Stop".
Press "Done" when completed.
iPhone Data Eraser does not only deal with apps but also all junk document that you don’t want to be restored. Try it and your phone will be as good as new.
