Some good news from apple emerges this week as Tim Cook declared that iPhone users will be able to delete unwanted apps. Finally, after more than 8 years of use, we will be able to delete useless iOS apps that we never used and we will never use in our entire life. This actually is something new that Apple can offer to its users, since Android does not yet have the feature available.
You know exactly what apps we are talking about. It’s those apps that you know from the first second that they are not of any worth to you, so you label them as “Junk” immediately after purchasing a new phone. Compass, Podcasts and Stocks are only some of these apps that you are so eager to get rid of.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Cook admitted that people “want to do this” and that it is something that is being looked at. There have been numerous complaints over the years, most of which can be found on Twitter. The good news is that they seem to finally have an impact. It only took 8 years, but it is always better to have something done later than never.
Cook also declared that Apple will eventually find a way to remove all these wanted apps because the company does not want to take users’ space for nothing. Its main priority is to keep everybody happy.
When Cook was asked about why all these apps were present and were not removed over so many years was because deleting them would impede some of the vital features that the iPhone had. Deleting the Phone app would obviously make gadget useless since you could not make any phone calls. Deleting Maps could have also been an issue for Siri because she could no longer give you directions without it.
In the meantime, the new iOS 9 is on its way and it looks promising because of the efficiency that it offers. As usual, it is not very different from the other iOS versions, but there has always been something great about how the iOS worked. It is very smooth, very easy to use and it is extremely durable. After having used an Android for 6 months, your phone will work a little better than a snail, but a 2 year old iOS phone will work just fine. It is safe to say that the iOS is a total winner.
