    Apples Apples aka Apps - Can I delete them?
    I do not trust Apps unless they were loaded personally into my phone -
    I am not looking to hide them on Page 10 - I would like to DELETE them altogether from my iPhone - is there a way?

    If Apple will not allow it please say WHY? Thank you

    You can delete 3rd party apps. See here. You cannot, however, delete stock Apple apps.

    For what, to delete the stock Apple apps? If that's what you really want to do, then I guess you're right. Or you could just stick them in a folder and call it a day. Your choice.

    Are you aware of the spying - tracking - and all around snooping done by Android and Apple apps?

    I am - and I do NOT want their effing apps in my phone!

    If Apple wanted to spy on you, they could do so through the OS itself.

    Deleting Apple's apps will not help.

    If you jailbreak, you can hide them, but you can't remove them. They are all core services that you HAVE to have, otherwise the phone wouldn't be useful to begin with.

    The core apps are all done by Apple themselves, and have nothing to be afraid of. CIQ which is included on most phones got ditched in iOS 5. You put a SIM in your phone, and that's pretty much as far as access the carriers get.

    Enjoy the phone and stop thinking about your privacy as you're most likely to run into those issues offline than you are online.
