Step 3: Uninstall iPhoe apps From iTunes on a Mac

This is for those of you who have not upgraded to iTunes 12.7 on your Mac. With iTunes 12.7, Apple removed the iOS App Store and iOS app management. If you upgraded to iTunes 12.7 and wish you didn’t, you can install iTunes 12.6.3. Click here

When you uninstall an application from your iOS device, iTunes will never copy them back on the device the next time you sync it. So, the above techniques are great if you want to uninstall an application from specific devices but still retain them in your iTunes library.

On the other hand, you want to nuke them entirely, go to iTunes and choose your Apps library. Click an application to select it, then click the Delete key. Another dialogue will ask you to confirm. You can remove the apps from your iTunes library, but keep them in a folder on your Mac just in case.

It might help you to view the applications in your iTunes library in a list. Press the View menu, then select View As > List. Press the Purchase Date header to sort it by the date you purchased the applications. If you do not see a Purchase Date header, click on the View menu and select the View Options, then in the pop-up window, look in the Statistic section and check the box for the Purchase Date. You can right-click on a blank header in the iTunes list and select Purchase Date in the pop-up menu.  (The Purchase Date is neither the day you download the application or the day you upgraded the application last) Look at the application with the oldest purchase dates to decide if u are still using them.

Step 4: When updating via iTunes on a Mac

There is one other way you can delete apps from the iTunes library, and it is one we use often. I have thousands of application, many that I use regularly, but most that I only tried out. It goes a long way to go through my Application library and try and remember what each app does. So, I have to wait until there are updates. Click here to download

In iTunes’ Updates section, you will see a list of new versions of an application that you can download, when an app has been updated. When I discover an app in the Update window that I don’t use anymore, I will delete it. This deletes the app itself from your iTunes library, and will also remove the update notifications. The next time you sync your iOS devices, the application you deleted from your iTunes library will be removed from the device.
