Now that the iPhones have been updated, can I delete apps directly from the iPhone?

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1

    yes, if you just touch the app and hold it then an "x" will pop up. just click that and it will ask if you are sure you would like to delete it.. press yes and then you have deleted apps directly from your phone

    Tap & hold the app you want to delete until they all start to wiggle. Tap the "X". Tap the home button when finished.

    Sure.  You can hold down an app's icon and then click the small "X" in the upper left corner to delete it.


    When you're done, press the home button to stop the wiggling.


    You cannot delete Apple supplied core apps.

    Touch the app and hold your finger down until all the apps start to jiggle. You will see a circled "x" in the upper left corner. Tap it to delete an app. When done press the Home button.


    You cannot delete any pre-installed iOS app.


    If there is No 'X' on any apps you have Downloaded... then check in Restrictions... Settings > General > Restrictions > Deleting Apps  =  Off / On


    If the app is in iTunes, then you delete the app in iTunes (Select the App and Press Delete on your Keyboard). If you then sync with your iDevice, the app will also be deleted from your iDevice.
