Abracadabra: How to make iOS 9 default apps disappear
posted by Alan F. / Jan 02, 2016, 11:22 PM
Grab the first app in the folder that you want to get rid off. Slide it as far right inside the folder as possible. With your finger still on the app, tap the home button and the app should magically vanish. Apple CEO Tim Cook said last September that the company is working on a way to allow iOS users to remove some of these apps. Not all of them can be eliminated, even temporarily, since some of them are important to the workings of iOS.
The apps aren't really disappearing permanently. They will remain off the grid, so to speak, when the phone wakes up after a restful sleep. But if you reboot the device, the apps will then reappear. But you can repeat the process again.
If you're looking to get rid of some unwanted default apps on your iOS device, simply click on the video below and follow what you see on the clip.

Well we can make a separate "app drawer" or as many different as we want place it there and forget it exists. And as far as space taken on memory - 1. iOS apps don't start on their own for no reason, 2. iOS9 is the smallest OS size known to men (overexaggerating a bit, but still iOS 9 leaves a very very small footprint).

There is an official way to remove lots of native apps using accessibility and restriction options. Like safari, camera (if you prefer another camera app), iTunes, podcast app, AppStore (for the kids), news, iCloud Drive, iBooks, and it even removes them from control center of its there. You can also make airdrop, Siri (locked screen, home screen, both) disabled, you can disable control center from locked screen, or inside apps and games or altogether. You can also get rid of Apple Music and just use the native music app like a regular MP3 player and iTunes Radio - that's what I do, because I do not pay for Apple Music or care for it. Removing these apps or features also will/can disable it throughout the OS - so there's no options that don't do anything. Just saying. But this news is old and I've been hiding a few things like camera - because I use it exclusively from control center.
