MultiDelete is a recently released tweak that lets you delete multiple apps at the same time. Instead of having to confirm every app deletion, MultiDelete lets you select all of the apps that you want to remove. If you need a quick way to clean up your iPhone’s SpringBoard, then this is one of the fastest ways to do so. 

Once MultiDelete is installed, you’ll find a new preference panel in the stock Settings app. There, you can enable or disable the tweak using a simple kill switch. You’ll need to perform a respring whenever toggling MultiDelete, but there is a respring shortcut inside of its preference panel.

To use MultiDelete, place your iPhone into wiggle mode by tapping and holding on any app icon on the Home screen. Instead of tapping the ‘x’ button in the upper left-hand corner of an app icon to delete an individual app, tap on the middle of an app icon to mark it for deletion. You can then mark as many apps as you wish to delete.

Once all of the apps that you wish to remove are marked for deletion, tap the ‘x’ button in the upper left-hand corner of any of the apps that you have selected, and you’ll then be prompted to delete all of the marked apps. Once you confirm, all of the apps selected will be removed simultaneously.

MultiDelete is a great way to remove multiple apps at the same time. You can find it free of charge on the BigBoss repo. What do you think?

    Jeff, your videos have really improved exponentially. Digging the background music! Your break down of the tweaks have a sweet flow, and the editing is getting better. Keep it up man. And thanks for the review.

    • Tommy, thank you for posting this. My goal is to make it a better viewing experience for our readers and viewers, so this makes me very happy to hear.

        I’ll be honest, I used to get “bored” half way through your videos, especially long ones. But recently, and especially now, you do an excellent job keeping the viewer “engaged”, if you will.
        Just curious, what software do you use to edit your videos?

      • I use Screenflow and Final Cut Pro X. Thinking about migrating over to Premier though.

        Never heard of Screenflow, but from a quick Google search, seems like a nice product. It definitely gets the job done though.

    Very useful tweak. I can see it saving myself .8 seconds in the future!

    After installing this tweak and using it to delete a few apps I uninstalled the tweak. Then I reinstalled the apps I had previously deleted. Now all of those apps have a X on them in the upper right hand corner of the app icon. I tried respringing, rebooting, Icleaning, safe mode, deleted the preference files, I have 4 apps that I cannot remove Multidelete’s X from. Super ugly and annoying.

    • Weird. I didn’t have that issue… Maybe clear UIcache? Type uicache at terminal.

      • Chang in Charge

        I’ll try that. Thanks Jeff.

    Simple yet very useful, why can’t developers come up with ideas like this.
