    How can they create iCloud and not have the option for you to delete your own content item by item?   (slaps forehead)

     

    I hope they are working on correcting this.   I don't necessarily want every picture I snap or download in my iCloud.

    Apple please hear all the complaints and acquiesce to allowing to delete from the iCloud and not just hide apps.

    It would be nice if at the very least Apple could configure iCloud so that I don't keep getting update alerts for apps that I've deleted from all of my devices. There should be a permanant delete option, so that if you know that you never want an app again you can remove it from backup.

    This is a case when an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure. I disabled autobackups when a set up my iPad - not quite soon- enough so have a few annoying apps - but now only backup what I want, or at least I think that's what's happening. I know this isn't any help with the apps crawling around already, but may stop future infestation.

    Hey there , if you wanna hide an app that u don´t wanna see in icloud it´s easy.

     

    open the appstore, go to updates, tap on buyed apps and search the app you wanna hide.

    found it ? now slide from right to left on that app and it will show up an option  that says Hide.

     

    Hope that helps you.

    Library -> Apps, find App, hit delete.  You'll get the "are you sure" alert. Click "Delete App"  Then you'll get the "move to trash or keep in Mobile apps folder".  Hit "Move to Trash".

    on iphone click appstore, then click update, then purchased, then click not on this phone, from there you can hide you previouse history by swiping across hope this helps but does not delete...

    You cannot delete, but you can hide Apps.

    You can delete any apps you've purchased off your ios devices by holding down the icon until it wiggles then pressing the x. You can delete any apps you've purchased off your computer by going in to iTunes, clicking on Apps in the sidebar, selecting the app you want to delete and press delete on the keyboard. But as far as deleting them out of the cloud, I'm not sure what you're asking there. If you are looking a your purchased items in the app store, what you're looking at is your purchased history. You can't delete your history. The advantage of that is that if your computer or ios device crashes and you didn't back it up, Apple has a record of everything you've purchased (including those things where the purchase price was $.00 or free) and you can re-download them without incurring a cost. So if you do not want them on any of your devices then delete them everywhere and don't re-download them. So as far as your apps and music are concerned you're not storing those in your own personal icloud account using up your 5GB. They are all stored in Apple's store and you can look at your purchase history and re-download what you want.

    TO DELETE A PARTICULAR APP'S DATA FROM iCLOUD:

     

    GO TO SETTINGS, ICLOUD, MANAGE STORAGE, SELECT DEVICE YOU ARE USING (iPhone or iPad), SELECT SHOW ALL APPS. 

     

    WHEN YOU FIND YOU'RE APP THEN SELECT OFF.  IF THERE IS NO OFF OPTION, TRY SLIDING THE APP LEFT TO RIGHT MOTION (either on screen or after going another step to app details, swipe all details left to right and confirm want to remove apps iCloud backup). 

     

    NEXT, FYI IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE DEVICE WITHTHE APP DATA YOU HAVE TO DO THIS PROCESS FOR EACH APP ON EACH DEVICE.

     

    AFTER ALL APPS HAVE ICLOUD BACKUP TURNED OFF ON ALL DEVICES, GO TO SETTINGS, ICLOUD, STORAGE AND BACKUP, THEN SCROLL DOWN AND 'BACK UP NOW' on each device.

    This has been really annoying me!  I get all the apps my little brother download with my apple id to my ipad and phone.  FIX THIS!

    Thanks, Laurie, for the detailed information as to how iCloud stores purchase history. 

    My teenage daughter has, inadvertently, downloaded totally inappropriate apps.  I want to, no, I need to, delete the purchase history of these apps from her iCloud account.  I don't want to just 'hide' them.  It is morally wrong to expect that she has to carry this inadvertent and inappropriate purchase history with her for as long as iCloud exists because Apple has decided not to include a 'delete' button.  It is also wrong to expect that we should set up a new iCloud account and purchase her regular apps for the second time, and ignore the previous iCloud account, which as I understand it, will continue to exist.

    Apple - please address this issue as a matter of urgency.

    Thanks

    Has anyone tried going to the list of Apps in the iCloud (Settings, General, Usage, iCloud:Manage Storage, Backups:*YOUR DEVICE*...) and selecting "Delete Backup"?   My personal thought is that if this is just the backup, that you can delete it all from the iCloud, reopen iCloud on the same device, and that the newly created backup from reopening will only consist of your current apps. Any thoughts/people willing to give this a try?
