    Hey all so I want to get rid of all my apps and start from scratch. I have a lot of apps that I have no need or desire to have on the new iPhone. Is it possible to delete all from hard drive and other storage locations or do they follow you upon log in?

    You can delete them in iTunes on your computer. If you just delete them on the phone, they stay in iTunes.

    On your phone, they would still be in your purchased list in the App Store. I've probably got over 500 apps in my purchased list, most of which I'll never download again.

    There is a somewhat lengthy method for removing them from the purchased list, but I don't think that was his question. He just wanted to know if they could be removed from the hard drive and other storage locations. The purchased list is just there so you can download them again if you want - it doesn't take up any space.
