Why can’t I delete apps on my IPHONE 15 PRO MAX?

Non-removable applications– You can remove almost all third-party apps and several built-in Apple apps. However, you cannot delete the main system apps such as Phone, Messages, Settings, Photos, Camera, Safari, App Store, Clock, Find My, Health and Wallet.
If you really want to destroy yourself from any of them, you can hide them from view.

Screen time restrictions – Have your parents put a screen time block on apps, or have you done it yourself by mistake?

Mobile device management (MDM) restrictions – If the IPHONE 15 PRO MAX was given to you by your company, school or other organization of this type, it may have a particular profile that prevents the uninstallation of certain applications. Please contact the appropriate administrator for assistance.
If this is the case, you cannot delete the apps unless you have administrator rights. So, hide and make peace with it.

Incomplete download – The app download has frozen due to some error, and now it is neither on nor off your IPHONE 15 PRO MAX
