Apple Is Finally Letting You Remove Those Un-Deletable iPhone Apps At Apple’s developer conference on Monday, the company announced the latest version of the software that powers iPhone iOS 10.
You’ll finally be able to delete 23 apps in total, including Tips, Stocks, and iBooks.
Removing all of these apps only amounts to 150MB of freed up storage. But it is helpful if you like keeping your homescreen clean.
If you remove Contacts, you won’t lose that information — it’ll all be stored in the Phone app. Also, the News app won’t be removable until a later version of the beta.
In iOS 10, these default apps can be removed from the home screen like every other app: press and hold until it jiggles, then tap X to remove.Nicole Nguyen / BuzzFeed
So, when can you download iOS 10?
iOS 10 is available in beta to developers today. The public will be able to join the beta in July and the wide release will arrive in the fall.
