How to delete apps on iPhone:

There is no way to mass delete apps on your iPhone, short of cleaning the phone and starting fresh. Though there are two ways that can go fairly quick as you one-by-one chose which apps you want to delete.

The one most of people are familiar with, is the “wiggle mode.” Press and hold any app icon, until they all start to wiggle and you are presented with the delete Xs.

Deleting the app will also delete all preferences and often data you’ve collected or created in them (depending on how that data is stored). Once in wiggle mode, deleting several can go quickly, unless you have to go from folder-to-folder looking for the appropriate ones. Exit the mode by returning home.

Another way to delete apps is by going into…

Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Storage > Manage Storage

Here you’ll see a list of all the apps ranked by memory usage (most to least), to give you feedback about which would allow you to reclaim the most space. But you still will have to select them one-by-one.
