  4. Can't delete Videos app downloaded movies from iPad2 device.

    Updated from ios7 to ios 8,1.2 yesterday and had been using Usage in ios7 settings to delete downloaded purchased movies after watching. Now, the Videos app doesn't even show up in Manage Storage. The Guide says there's supposed to be an Edit button at the top right in the Videos app, but it isn't there. I don't dare use the Video app again else I run the risk of not having enough space to download the next ios release. 

    I'm getting no help for this question at Apple Community.
