What is KORTV? Why has the KORTV app appeared on my iPhone or iPad: Mysterious iOS app reportedly isn't malicious, can be deleted like a standard app

Lewis Painter | Oct. 12, 2016
Despite Apple's high security measures, iOS users are reporting claims of a mysterious KORTV app appearing on their devices despite not downloading it themselves. Is this evidence of an iOS hack, or something innocent? Here, we explain what the KORTV app is, how the app appeared on your iPhone or iPad and how to remove it.

So, how do you remove the seemingly innocent KORTV app from your iPhone or iPad? The easiest way to remove it is to delete the app as you normally would by tapping and holding on the app icon until it wiggles, then tapping the 'X' in the top-right hand corner. While this should remove the app from your device entirely, those that are worried about security can go one step further and reset the iPhone or iPad.

As well as this, users can also disable the automatic install of apps on all linked iOS devices. This should stop the KORTV app (or any other apps) from being automatically installed on your iPhone or iPad in future, when downloading a related app from the Apple TV App Store. To do this, simply head to the Settings app, tap iTunes & App Updates and make sure the App option is toggled off.
