    I have a few old jailbroken apps that still appear on my on my 5S, but the apps are greyed and when I try to delete it won't. I tried to remove through iTunes and that won't remove either. Anybody else got this problem? Restart and delete still won't work.

    You might try iClean. I removes deleted data. No idea if it will work for you or not, but maybe worth a shot. I would further suggest iCleaner Pro (Cydia), but if you are no longer jailbroken then that won't help.

    Note, I don't know why, but the app (if you buy it) will download as "Lyric Search". But, it's the app in the link and it does what it says.

    This is because you restored to a jailbroken backup when setting up your new 5S.
    Never a good idea, you can see why.
    If you want to fix it correctly, do a clean restore, set up as new, do not restore to any backup.

    That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for clearing that up.
