ios_10_stock_appsLet’s face it, how many of us actually bothers to use the stock iOS apps like the Compass, Tips, or Find Friends? Sure, there are some of us who might have use for voice memos, stocks, and reminders (even though there are much better alternatives), but the fact remains is that these apps are there whether we like it or not.

There have been tricks discovered in the past that lets users hide these apps, but it seems that in iOS 10, users will finally be able to delete them. Users who have managed to get their hands on the preview of iOS 10 have discovered that they are able to delete stock apps the same way you would normal apps.

This was not mentioned at WWDC oddly enough, especially since this is something that many users have been asking for, but we guess either way it is still a welcome change. As for the deleted apps, users can easily restore them by downloading them again, much like you would a regular app, so don’t worry you will be able to restore “Tips” if and when you want to.

In the meantime iOS 10 has been set for a release this coming fall presumably alongside the new iPhones, but its preview/beta should be open to those who are part of the Apple Developer Program.
