Quick Answer

  • The Apple TV app can’t be deleted as it is pre-installed with the Mac.
  • Instead, you can hide the Apple TV app from your Mac’s Dock.

When I got my MacBook Pro, I got the Apple TV Plus subscription for free for three months. After three months, I lost interest in the Apple TV and decided to delete the app from my Mac. But, as the Apple TV app is a built-in app in all Apple devices, it can’t be deleted from Mac.

This is one of the major issues among Mac users. When I looked for solutions on the Apple Community page, more than 200 users were facing this issue. Instead of trying to delete the app, I simply removed the app from my Mac’s Dock. In this way, I’m no longer seeing the Apple TV app. If you want to delete the Apple TV app from your Mac or iMac, you can follow this guide to hide the Apple TV from the Dock.
