One of the main disadvantages of iOS is the lack of customization. You can do simple customization such as wallpaper, ringtone etc. but when it comes to widgets, themes, delete stock apps etc. is a bit difficult.
It can be done, but you have to jailbreak your device, which voids your warranty and sometimes can brick your device if it is not done right.
Everyone uses iPhone and iPad for a different reason, so the apps installed on their device can vary. With this variations, someone you may need to delete apps that don’t use, especially Apple’s own apps.
I personally would like to delete the Stocks App and the Newsstand App but Apple doesn’t allow me to do this. No one can delete Apple’s own Apps from their device and this can be very annoying sometimes because you may want to keep your home screen clean and simple, without unnecessary apps.
So, I am going to show you How to Hide any Apple App on iOS without Jailbreak. This method works for any app but It is mainly used for Apple’s own apps because they are the ones you cannot delete manually.
How to Hide any Apple App on iOS 9 without Jailbreak
This method is confirmed as working on iPhone or iPad running iOS 9 and its versions. Follow the steps below carefully and the method should work.
Find all the Apple Apps that you don’t need or don’t use. Apps such as Stocks, Tips, Find My Friends, Podcasts, Health & iBooks are all Apple apps that cannot be deleted and are annoying for a lot of people.
Create a folder and put all these apps in a folder. You can also place any other app that you don’t need.
After you put your unnecessary apps into a folder, tap and hold the app you want to hide to enter your device in wiggle mode.
Now, move the app you are holding to the next page, so the app is alone on one page. Your device should be still in wiggle mode.
Now, tap and hold the app again, so you can move it around. You have to move it from the second page to the third page. When you move it, make sure to drag it to the right edge of the page and make sure to not let the app go.
Note: You can check the page you are at by looking the dot at the bottom. The third dot tells you that you are on the third page.
Once you are on the third page, still holding the app, bring it back to the center and while still holding the app, press the Home Button. You will see the app go to the top left corner of your phone and disappear. The app will be disappeared and is nowhere to be found.
Do this for all the apps you want to disappear.
