PSA: As you’d anticipate, iOS 10 doesn’t truly remove inventory apps, it simply covers them

Among the little but frequently-required modifications launched in iOS 10 is the fact that you are able to, lastly, conceal inventory apps. The text is essential, since Apple’s own text is somewhat deceptive.

Whenever you ‘erase’ an inventory app, iOS requires you if you like to ‘eliminate’ the app. And Apple’s own assistance site for that function also employs the exact same term.

The truth, however, is notably diverse, as Apple SVP Craig Federighi established on John Gruber’s podcast. Whatever you are now actually performing is removing the consumer information linked to the app, and covering the image from view. The particular binary stays in your device.

That’ll not really matter significantly, although, as Apple’s assistance site highlights.

The apps included in iOS are made to be really space-efficient, therefore them all together use significantly less than 150MB.

The entire list of inventory apps that may be concealed is shown below.
