    Now, the app is gone, and you'll be taken back to the Storage screen
    .
    This is a way to quickly delete applications and restore excess space on your phone. Generally speaking, when I complete a tutorial on a game or application, I delete it if I do not regularly use that app. For now, let's tap on Usage at the top left corner of the screen to go back.
