How to remove items from the array in JavaScript

JavaScript offers us different methods to remove the items/elements from the array today we are going to learn about the pop method and shift method.

Pop method

The pop method helps us to remove the last item from the array and returns the removed item.

Example:

const arr = [1,2,3,4];

const lastItem = arr.pop();

console.log(lastItem); // 4

Shift method

The shift method helps us to remove the first item from the array and returns that removed item.

Example:

const arr = [1,2,3,4];

const firstItem = arr.shift();

console.log(first); // 1
