Apple Now Allows Users to Delete Pre-installed Apps
After the WWDC keynote, the most surprising update from Apple is it allowing the pre-installed apps that comes with any iPhone to be deleted by the end user. That’s good news.
The stable, pre-installed apps that every user gets when purchasing a new Apple device is listed in the App Store. This was announced together with the release of iOS 10 in the recently held WWDC keynote. These are the same apps that are requisite and can not be installed ever by any user. It’s part of an update brought up by the new iOS 10 OS that have now been released as a preview today. A public beta will come in July and a full release will arrive in the fall.
Here are list of apps that are not consigned to the App Store and are now removable from the home screen and free up some storage space:
- Find My Friends
- iCloud Drive
- iTunes Store
- Apple Music
- Voice Memos
One the other hand, users still have the option of downloading the app again from the App Store if necessary. But a caution that removing some apps can break their functionality in the Control Center, the Notification Center and with CarPlay.
