This is how you uninstall all version for a system app, whether it be Maps or anything else that you can't remove from your device.

  • In the next step, you’ll open your smartphone’s system settings. Under ‘’Apps’ or ‘Applications Manager’ you need to swipe two times to the right which will bring you to all installed apps. You can find your app in the list which is organized in alphabetical order.
  • Once you have tapped on the app, it then opens a new screen where you will find the button ‘Uninstall Updates’, which you need to select. This will uninstall all updates to this Android system app.
  • After doing this, the app will be revert back to its original state. In the Google Play Store, the updates will of course be available to you, but as long as you don’t install these, the old one will remain on your device. If accidentally updated, just do this process once again.

And that's how you get it done! B)

To uninstall all updates for a system app on an Android device, you typically need to navigate to the app settings and then follow a specific set of steps. First, go to the device's "Settings" menu and locate the "Apps" or "Applications" section. From there, find the system app for which you want to uninstall updates. Once you've selected the app, you should see an option that allows you to uninstall updates. This option might be labeled differently depending on the device and Android version, but it's often found under the "Storage" or "App Info" section. After selecting the option to uninstall updates, the system app will revert to its original version, removing any updates or changes that were applied since the initial installation. Keep in mind that this process may vary slightly depending on your device's manufacturer and Android version, so it's a good idea to consult your device's user manual or online resources for specific instructions.
