Apple Watch Owners Will Be Able to Delete Built-in Apps from Their watchOS 6
Pre-installed apps are part of smartphone life. There is no doubt that some of these apps to add value to your life but not all of them may be useful to you. Apple does provide its customers with certain utility apps but not all of them may find it valuable. This is true even in the case of Apple watches. But that is going to be changed soon with the launch of Apple’s watchOS 6. It will allow users to uninstall even built-in apps.
It’s been almost three years that Apple has allowed its users to remove some of the built-in apps from their iPhones. While some may have interest in accessing the stock apps, others may appreciate having a calculator. Apple is soon going to provide the same experience even with their watches.
As pointed out by TechCrunch, the clue comes from the appearance of certain watchOS-only apps on the Apple app store. This indicates that users will be able to install them whenever they want. This also suggests that they will be able to remove it according to their wish. All you need to do is press and hold the apps and then hit the X to delete it.
However, not all the in-built apps can be removed. Apps such as radio, timer, and walkie talkie will remain. You can even delete the ECG app which is considered to be an important app. other important apps such as heart rate and messages will also stay. These apps are there to provide you with a lovely Apple watch experience.
This may be a small improvement made by Apple but users are definitely liking it as they can get more control over what they want. Also, they will be able to free up space on their devices.
