You know how when you go to the updates section in the App Store and you see that it’s taking forever for one app to download even though you never use it?

The days of that happening are finally going to be over once iOS 13. An unmentioned feature in iOS 13 lets users delete apps right from the App Store section so you don’t have to go hunt down the app icon.

Check it out in action:

The feature works on the App Store for both iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. All you have to do is swipe left on an app in the update section and it will reveal the delete option.

iOS 13 contains dozens of new features that weren’t talked about during the WWDC 2019 keynote. Some of the most notable once include optimized battery charging, full-page screenshots in Safari and even mouse support on iPad. Developers received the first beta of iOS 13 this week with the first public beta expected to arrive with fewer bugs later this month.
