    I synced backup from iiPhone 4 into iPhone5 and I can't delete those apps.

    Can you not delete those apps even in iPhone 5 like in iPhone 4?

    Nope. Best bet is to put them into a folder to hide them.

    You can't delete them and you cannot put newsstand into a folder as it acts like a folder itself.

    This. I just move them to my last page, so I don't have to see them.

    You can't delete any Apple default app on any iPhone or iOS device without being jail broken.

    You can't delete them on the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4 or any idevice.
    You can try sticking them in a folder or use stifflestand to stick newsstand in a folder.

    I will not physically try to erase folders and apps like that. Some of those are vital for the rest of the OS to function right. And even though they are useless to some people if you delete them with SHSH you're risking getting stuck at the Apple logo or your phone running crappy.

    Why would you want them deleted for? I use them all the time.
