New Feature for iOS 10


Apple users have been begging for more control over their device. Android users can easily root their android os so they can take full control of the device. They can uninstall unwanted apps that comes with android easily. In iOS they cant do that. But now, starting from iOS 10 they are saying that users can now delete the built-in apps. More on the story here.


Starting with iOS 10, Apple will be giving iPhone and iPad owners more control over the software that’s installed on iOS devices. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to delete the company’s built-in apps (Maps, Calculator, Music, Videos, etc.) and download them again later. All of the major iOS apps are now visible within the App Store, and they’ve each got fleshed out descriptions and screenshots.




Now you can delete apps like calculator, Calendar, Mail, Compass, Podcast, Music and etc. Isn’t it that amazing? More on the story below.


Yet strangely, nothing about this was mentioned on stage during the WWDC keynote. Neither Tim Cook nor software boss Craig Federighi discussed any “unbundling” of apps from iOS 10. It didn’t even appear on the cool, nerdy list of new features during the keynote:


But it’s certainly happening. Here’s Compass:


And users who’ve downloaded today’s developer beta are confirming the change. Certain apps like Messages, Photos, and Camera cannot be deleted, presumably because they’re tied too deeply to the system to be uninstalled.


Not all apps can be deleted, we understand that. Certainly you need messages, photos, camera.

Apple has also published a help page on removing built-in apps, warning of some small issues you might run into once you do. User data gets removed along with the apps. (Don’t worry: your contacts remain in the Phone app.) If you remove weather, for example, the weather will no longer appear in Notification Center or on your Apple Watch. If you remove Music, you’ll lose it inside CarPlay. Here’s the full list of stuff that can currently be removed, direct from Apple. The News app will be removable in a later version of the iOS 10 beta.


There you have it, iOS users now have full access and control over there device. Here are the list of apps that you can remove: Calculator, Calendar, Compass, Contacts, Facetime, Find My Friends, Home, iBooks, iCloud Drive, iTunes Store, Mail, Maps, Music, News, Notes, Podcast, Reminders, Stocks, Tips, Videos, Voice Memos, Watch app, Weather.
