Here’s how you can restore deleted system / stock apps in iOS 10 beta. The process is absolutely simple, so let’s go through it.

Restoring Deleted Stock Apps In iOS 10 Beta Is Easy, We’ll Walk You Through The Process

iOS 10 fulfills a feature request which many users have been crying out for – the ability to delete stock apps. While iOS 10 doesn’t actually ‘delete’ stock apps from the device, it instead hides them from plain view. This means you don’t end up freeing up space on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device even if you get rid of all the deletable stock / system apps. Nonetheless, you do get to rid your home screen from the first-party eyesore which ships as standard out of the box.

Now, if you did go out on a deleting spree and wish to revert your changes, then you’ll be pleased to learn you can do so without much fuss. Simply search for the deleted stock app (or apps) on the App Store – ‘Mail’ for example – and tap on the download button next to it. But, of course, that’s a tiresome process. We’ll make things much more simpler for you by laying down the download links of all the stock iOS 10 apps on the App Store:

– Weather
– Stocks
– Mail
– Maps
– Notes
– Voice Memos
– Watch
– Music
– FaceTime
– iTunes Store
– Calendar
– Contacts
– Videos
– Calculator
– Compass
– Tips

Wrap Up

Quiet frankly, we don’t see why anyone would want to get rid of all of the stock apps from their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. Sure you can throw things straight into a ‘Garbage’ folder like we’ve been doing for a long time, but there’s something about an icon not being there that tickles everyone’s fancy. With iOS 10, you now have that great option of getting rid of apps completely.

Exciting New iOS 10 Features That Apple Didn't Showcase at Today's Event

We really wish, apart from deleting stock apps, Apple grants us the power to set third-party apps as default on top of the stock ones. For instance, the ability to replace Safari with Chrome would be a swell move for those who make do with Google’s Web browser more. But it seems at this point this feature could be reserved for a future release of iOS. At the same time, there’s also reason for us to believe we might end up seeing this addition soon. After all, the Cupertino giant did bring Night Shift to its range of mobile devices without waiting for iOS 10.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
