    @Medi1Saif May be he is thinking it as like destroying/burning printed Quran. – Enamul Hassan Apr 30 '16 at 0:16

Electronic copies of the Quran doesn't come under the same ruling as mushafs. Because writing Quran on the mobile phone or computers is not like writing it in a Mushaf. Electronic texts are not permanent, they appear when you open the app or the file containing the Quran and disappear when you close it. The specific instructions prescribed for destroying a mushaf don't apply to them.

So, it is permissible to delete them.
