IOS 14 doesn't let you delete apps, but you can remove apps from your home screen so they only appear in your app library. Learn more about using the app library.

Deleting an app does not cancel in-app subscriptions. When you delete an app, you may see the option to "Cancel Subscriptions". Find out how to cancel subscriptions here.
