Does anyone else have OCD where they can't bring themselves to delete stock iPhone apps even if they don't use them like Home or News? I'm so used to seeing them on the first page of my homescreen that I can't get rid of them.

I get rid of all stock apps, apart from a few on the main home screen. Which I don’t use anyways :p

Edit. It’d be rather empty if I got rid of all the stock apple apps haha. So I leave a few just to keep the home screen full

Not a problem I can honestly say I have ever dealt with.

Unfortunately for me, my primary phone is running iOS 9. So I can't get rid of them anyway. They are all stuck in a folder on the last springboard page.

No problem here. I customize my screens as much as I can. If I don't use the app it gone.
Same for me. No point in an app staying on my phone and collecting data if I don't use/want it. And I definitely don't keep the apps on the homescreen, I replace and reorder them how I need. lol

the only stock app that i kept but dont use is compass. And you can re-download them from the app store.

You can enable the "Offload Unused Apps" option (in Settings > iTunes & App Stores) and essentially have iOS manage it for you, at least from storage side of things.

The stock apps don’t really get “deleted” so I don’t bother as well.
