New iOS 10

During the WWDC 2016, Apple announced the arrival of its new OS for iPhones and many new astonishing features for all its platforms. Though many announcements were during their keynotes, this new feature was not clearly mentioned in it.

Recently many core iOS apps have found their way in the App Store h
aving screenshots as well as description in full details. This has led to the customers in amazement. But the company finds it convenient to provide updates of their apps through App Store in the same fashion like Android did years ago.

First time ever from its existence, iPhone has been given the users the permission to uninstall any pre-installed app. Before this users were able to do such operations only by performing jailbreak, which is a sort of software alteration, on the device. There was no way before to set an app as a default app to carry out particular tasks like finding directions or addresses.


Except standard apps like camera, phone, and messaging, new iOS 10 developer preview version allows the user to remove these following apps:

  • Podcasts
  • Maps
  • Compass
  • Tips
  • Calculator
  • Watch
  • Reminders
  • Weather
  • iCloud Drive
  • Calendar
  • Mail
  • Voice Memos
  • Contacts
  • Stocks
  • Music

Apple users certainly know that there is no option for changing the setting of default apps for functions like mapping, emailing and locating an address. Indeed this new iOS 10 permits you to do so. Now Apple could even allow its users to set any other alternative apps as default standard apps like calendar app, browsers, even for an emailing app.

Well this is just a guesses, but it will really amuse the technology market if Apple will let you choose Google Maps for locations above Apple’s classic Maps app or even Gmail above Mail, or Spotify over the existing Apple Music. These developer previews are still to reveal many more features.
