There is a different method you can try. Go to your iTunes library and choose applications you’ll see in the dropdown menu to remove the ones you don’t need.
You cannot remove the default apps (such as iBooks, Health, Settings etc.) but you can hide them. Developers got a chance to get rid of these apps however their solution is pretty complicated. Ordinary users still have to wait for Apple to allow removing its default programs from the iPhone.
