    Hi All,

    No issues whatsoever with the way that Apple have implemented the "removal" of stock apps on iOS10 however, I have one major issue.

    Of all of the stock apps you can "remove", why on earth can we not get rid of that awful and pointless "Photo Booth" app.

    I am sure that someone somewhere uses it, but I would dearly love to be able to hide the loathsome creation.

    photo booth is not a stock app...not sure why you can't delete it though. Try going through settings>general>storage & iCloud usage>manage storage, tap on "Photo Booth" and see if the "delete" option is there.

    Photo Booth was a stock app ever since I bought my first iPad 2. I have had it on every single iPad since as well.

    It doesn't even show up in the storage list either, most odd.

    Photo Booth is a stock app on iPad and is indeed unremovable for some reason. Might become removable in future.

    I don't see a Photo Booth app on my iPhone 6s Plus or iPad Pro.

    It is not on the iPhone. As for the iPad Pro idk about that, I thought it was stock on all iPads

    It was iPad only and somewhere around ios6 I think, maybe before that.
    It is awful. It must be some sort of legacy thing. I might message Apple and see what they say.

    For those of you that don't have it on their iPads, how long have you owned an iPad and if it's a while, have you always restored from a back up when you get a new one?

    I wonder if it's just an old hangover from an early iOS.

    I fully expect that they do, it might just be in some Extras folder. It's a red icon for those wondering.

    I don't remember if I have this app on my iPad. I remember it from iOS 6 or something, not in the new versions.
