remove built in iOS 10 apps

Following the release of iOS 10 yesterday we have taken time to explain the five best features of the latest Apple mobile operating system but it seems there’s another big feature we left out which is the ability to delete Stock Apple apps you don’t care about.

The process is the same as removing any other app – long-press an app until it jiggles, then tap the ‘x.’ Here are the 23 apps you can remove from your home screen:
  • Calculator
  • Calendar
  • Compass
  • Contacts
  • FaceTime
  • Find My Friends
  • Home
  • iBooks
  • iCloud Drive
  • iTunes Store
  • Mail
  • Maps
  • Music
  • News
  • Notes
  • Podcasts
  • Reminders
  • Stocks
  • Tips
  • Videos
  • Voice Memos
  • Watch
  • Weather
It’s also worth knowing the the warning shot of removing your built-in apps Straight from Apple:
  1. If you remove Contacts, all of your contact information will remain in the Phone app.
  2. If you remove the FaceTime app, you can still make and receive FaceTime calls in Contacts and the Phone app.
  3. If you remove the iBooks, Maps, Music, or Podcast apps, they won’t be available to use with CarPlay.
  4. If you try to remove the Watch app from an iPhone that’s paired with an Apple Watch, an alert asks you to unpair your Apple Watch before you can remove the app.


You can restore  the removed built in app by going to the App Store and search for the app. Tap Download to restore the app.Wait for the app to restore, then open it from your Home screen.
