Apple Is Finally Letting You Remove Those Un-Deletable iPhone Apps

BYE FOREVER, STOCKS.

Posted on

At Apple's developer conference on Monday, the company announced the latest version of the software that powers iPhone and iPad: 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.
