However the presentation has not been announced one important feature – the ability to delete a stock app pre-installed on iOS 10. Already available to developers a beta version has this feature.

In 2015, Apple CEO Tim cook said that this is a more complicated problem than it seems at first glance because the stock applications are interrelated and removing one of them may lead to errors in device operation.

For example, after deleting Music or Podcasts, they will be available in CarPlay. Although deletion of the Contacts application will not lead to permanent loss of contacts, they will be available in the Phone app".
