To delete add-on apps, place the specific app into move mode. Press the app's icon, and hold it in place until all of the apps on the screen start jiggling. An X within a circle appears once the jiggling starts, located in the upper left-hand corner of the icons that can be directly deleted. Press the X, and then confirm the deletion in the pop-up box that appears.

For original apps, the removal process requires the use of the parental controls. Press the Settings icon to enter the iPad's settings menu. Select the General option on the menu at the left of the screen, and then click on Restrictions. Touch the Enable Restrictions button at the top, and then enter the four-digit passcode twice into the keypad to set the password. Press the button next to the various apps that need to be disabled until the restriction is set to Off.
