Press and hold an app. It should jiggle. Then tap the X then tap Delete.

They don't show up because you are running iTunes 12.7

iTunes will run you ragged if you keep it. Go to settings and hit cellular and turn off whatever apps you don't use plus the Siri on those apps. Open restrictions in general and check that as well, restrict what u don't use.
