How to Remove an App or Profile

Removing an app or iOS profile from a device

There may come a time when you want to removed an app from a device. In order for an app to be removed from a device it must be a Managed app, meaning it was sent to the device from Manager. iOS profiles can be deleted regardless of whether they were installed from Apple Configurator or Manager.
