How to Uninstall iPhone Games

By Ryan Mooney

The Apple iPhone is capable of many multimedia functions. You can easily add games and other applications from the on-phone marketplace. Games take up device memory and may cause issues with your phone, such as slowness and low memory errors. You may also be completely finished with a game and no longer require it on the iPhone. You can uninstall the game from the device when you are finished with it. Additionally, you can completely remove the file from your device without going through the uninstall process.
