    Unable to uninstall apps on iPad 2 after performing IOS 6 upgrade

    Since upgrading my iPad 2 to IOS 6, I am not able to uninstall apps by simply holding them and tapping the ‘X’ mark. This is the case with both inbuilt and third party apps. Is there any solution available for this problem?

    You may have set up restrictions for deleting apps from your iPad accidentally or intentionally. Check for that settings first and disable the restrictions if it is turned on. Press the ‘Home’ button gently to view the home screen and search for the ‘Settings’ icon. Tap over that icon until the iPad screen displays a list of its main settings. Navigate through that list and hit the option named ‘General’ so that you can see the general settings. From those settings, you can find the ‘Restrictions’ option. Tap that option and check whether the switch next to ‘Deleting Apps’ shows ‘ON’ label. If so, toggle the switch until it turns into ‘OFF’ mode.

    Dear Friend

    This problem could be there due to the Restrictions fro deleting the apps from your ipad..

    For lifting up this restriction you should follow the following steps:

    -=-Go to the SETTINGS in the Home Screen

    -=-Navigate through the list and locate GENERAL settings.

    -=-Choose the GENERAL and there you will find the RESTRICTIONS label.

    -=-Tap on that and check if the Deleting Apps shows On label.

    -=-IF it shows then just tap on it to DISABLE.

    THANKS..
