So I (and a lot of other people I know) don't have to create a folder called (junk)?
No, you cannot.
I believe the passhack still works in beta 5... But it doesnt uninstall it, just hides it.
This should be locked and made a sticky, along with other frequently asked questions.
Whats the passhack?
Go to it on your device
that would be sweet, I have never had a topic "stickied" before
just did, but it only worked on my iOS 6 device not my test device.
It worked! I was able to hide Newsstand!
They come back after every reset or software update. I've given up and just moved the things I want to hide to the last page.
Yes, that's true. I did a restart to bring the Newsstand icon back. I don't use it, but someday I might. I'm not planning to hide any of them, but I think it's kind if neat that we can, at least temporarily.
I want to be able to hide and restore according to my preferences. Stay hidden until I say otherwise. But putting all the ones I hate on the last screen works well enough for me.
I created a special "folder of shame" for these apps to hide in
Mine's called crapple.
Mine's ironically auto-named 'Productivity'...
Fwiw you can put newsstand in a folder on ios7 with no issues
Don't really see what the issue is. Do these icons really bug some people?
Not so much the icons, just that many prefer 3rd-party apps instead.
Oh right, I see. I guess the easiest is just loading them into a folder. Now that in iOS7 folders are easier to use and Newstand app goes into it without any hacks, it helps.
It's too bad stock apps can't be deleted - easily. I think it's part of Apple making iOS safe for non-tech people. There would probably be confusion between deleting apps and closing them in the multitasking area. Then there would be multiple genius bar appointments asking "where did my weather app go?"
I just create a folder called "Crap" on my last springboard page and put the undeletables in there.
I assume they don't let you delete them because of the dependancies of other system services.
Siri and Notifications have Stocks, Weather, Maps integration.
To me its not a big deal as I always have a folder called utilities or something where I have the compas and calculator, etc. Putting stocks in there hides it well enough.
