How to Trick iOS 7 Into Letting You Hide Apple's Annoying Default Apps

Be honest: when was the last time you opened your iPhone's Stocks app? Yeah, us neither. Everyone has their own habits when it comes to iOS apps, and fortunately, YouTube user macmixing has posted a wonderful little hack that lets you get rid of any offending stock apps from your home screen—without actually deleting them altogether.


Originally found by VBarraquito on Twitter, the trick takes advantage of a glitch in yesterday's publicly released version of iOS 7. The best part? It's super easy to do. All it takes is a few strategically timed home button clicks and icon holding, and you're free of all the proprietary apps you (don't) want.

Even after you clear them, you can still access them via the search function, should you come down with a case of deleter's remorse. So RIP Stocks app; we hardly knew ye. [AppAdvice; Thanks, Don!]


also, my favorite feature so far is that I can put unlimited apps in a single folder.
