    Does anyone actually want 90% of the default apps that come on iPhone?V I am very glad this feature to remove the stock apps exists in iOS!

    I deleted tips, stocks, itunes store, music, homekit, and many others, just no need for them at all.

    Yes, this is a nice feature. I would delete “Health” too, if I could.

    Associated data is deleted, but it unfortunately doesn’t free up space for the apps themselves. I wonder why the App Store is required to reinstall them. Moreover you can’t change default associations, only “remove” the apps. You find pretty quickly that you need apps around to satisfy Siri, for instance.

    Default apps cannot be deleted. They can only be hidden.

    They still take up space on the device.

    On my iPad, the apps wiggle all right, but no X comes up to delete them. Why?

    I still cannot understand why Apple doesn’t make the apps that are able to be hidden in iOS 10 available as standalone apps in the App Store. They can preinstall them, but users should be able to completely delete them, similar to how Find My iPhone/Friends, iBooks, Podcasts, etc. used to be. It’s a great system for everyone and there’s really no reason to build things like stocks or voice memos so deep into the system.

    Apple maps got us lost a few times, so I deleted it. Only Google maps does to work while in China :(

    It would be nice to delete iMessage from my iPad, and the camera app.

    I disabled facetine and other nonsense.

    It is a shame Apple opts us into stuff without asking.

    I was able to delete all them dumb stuff from my macbook!

    I deleted or uninstalled some factory apps today. Then later I found out I needed the Videos app back. I went to the app store but could not find it there. I tapped on Updates and chose “All” but it’s not there. Chose “Not on This Ipod” and it’s not there either. What do I do now?

    Did they change it back to you can not delete the default apps? I ask because the X is not appearing on my default apps. IPhone 4s 5gb and really need that space for things I want, not junk they think I want. I kind of feel like they did it so I have to upgrade to a phone with more memory
