You’re taking photos, downloading apps and iMessaging your friends and family just like every other day of your life, and suddenly you get a “Storage Almost Full” notification. Sound familiar? Yep, the iPhone storage struggle is real. Thus begins the sad and tedious task of deleting videos and photos, old text messages and apps. It’s enough to make you want to cry :( If you have a 16 GB basic tier iPhone, it might make you pretty irked to know that all those Apple preloaded apps (some useful and some not) can take up a few gigs of space. According to Mashable, that could finally be about to change.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that the tech company is “looking at” ways for people to remove those annoying pre-loaded apps that get no mileage. “It’s not that we want to suck up your real estate,” he says. “We want you to be happy.” Aww, thanks Tim. Getting rid of Stocks would make me extremely happy.
However, not everything will be going at the press of an “X.” Tim also expressed that certain apps are deeply linked with other functions in the phone, probably like “iCloud Drive,” “Find Friends” and “Find My Phone.” Therefore, those apps probably won’t be going anywhere.
