    How To Delete Apps That Wont Delete

    I'm not sure how you expect us to be able to help without asking you questions? There's also no need to be rude to members trying to help you!

    Apple Watch

    That's a good point, there isn't really a section for it at the moment. I'll have a think on how to word things, but perhaps I'll add an "other Apple hardware" section. For now, I'd stick it in the Off-Topic section:
