  1. On the menu sidebar, under CONFIGURE, click Apps and then click Android or Apple iOS.
  2. On the Apps page, click Uninstall.
  3. Select the devices from which you want to uninstall an app. Do one of the following:
    • Select individual devices.
    • Click Select device groups and then select one or more device groups.
    When you are ready, click Next.
  4. On the Select app page, select the required app.
  5. On the Set execution date page, specify the date when the app will be uninstalled:
    • Select Now for an immediate execution.
    • Select Date and then enter a date and a time for a scheduled execution.
  6. Click Finish.

The selected app is uninstalled from the selected devices at the specified date.

Managed apps on supervised iOS devices are uninstalled silently, that is without user interaction.
