    Phone: I'm on a data-only plan, so, I use Google Hangouts for calls
    App Store: haven't bought new apps in years
    Settings: almost never change any settings, leave them on default
    Home: don't have a smart home
    iTunes Store: haven't bought music in years
    Contacts: it's in the Phone app
    Videos: I have YouTube app for that
    Watch: sold mine long time ago and haven't looked back until watchOS 3
    Stocks: yeah, everybody's favorite app
    Tips: no comment
    Find My Friends: I don't need to find them, they're in my face 24/7 on Facebook and Snapchat

    Stocks (Never used it)
    Tips (Because I totally need tips...)
    Videos (Again, always streaming)

    Not planning to delete any stock app even though I can, yet.
    Planning to remove:
    Stock (never use)
    Home (nothing I have can use it)
    Videos (never use it)
    Watch (no watch no need)

    Uh, pretty much those. Maybe I will delete Music app. Maybe.

    The only ones I kept are iBooks, Music, and Maps. But I might end up deleting Music because I keep it all in my iPod to begin with.

    Stocks, tips, contacts... I had to re-add contacts though.. Because sometimes when I would click on the contact it would tell me it wasn't installed... I really wish Apple would just remove that app and make it the same thing as the phone app.

    Tips, Stocks, Home, Watch. My Apple Watch is paired to my 6s, and I'm running the beta on my 5s so I have no need for the Watch app on this device.

    How exactly does phone app manage FaceTime? Or am I getting it wrong?

    So what happens when you click on details in a iMessage? does iOS crash since that page reads from the contacts app?

    iOS treats FaceTime like a phone call.

    Just like Contacts, all the functionality of FaceTime is in the dialer, it just has a seperste app to access THAT specific function.

    Just curious, does deleting Apple's built in apps free up a noticeable amount of space?

    Also, does it affect Siri functionality (for example, can Siri still tell me the weather without the stock weather app?)

    All of the apps that are removable combined are designed to take up no more than 150mb (as I expected. I knew Apple's apps didn't take up that much space).

    This is realistically a way to hide icons over actually freeing up space.

    Space savings are negligible. Yes it will tell you the weather.

    Contacts, stocks, tips and about to delete home since my nest doesn't seem to want to connect. There may have been one or two more but I don't remember since I never use them anyways lol

    None because I'm still pissed that Apple even gave in to such a ridiculous request.

    Can't wait for: HOW DO I GET THEM BACK?????

    The App Store is not a deletable app.

    Makes sense but the OP says they deleted it. Also seems implausible that you could delete Settings too which the OP states. Plus the OP says they deleted the Phone app. Seems ironic that you can delete the Phone App off an iPhone.:eek: Is it still a cell Phone if it not a cell phone? :D Also how can it call 911 which I believe is a legal requirement?

    Lol I definitely have to say OP made up those first three, UNLESS they are experiencing a MAJOR bug! :)

    I don't see the point in deleting them, they don't free any space.

    Tips, Podcasts, Stocks, Watch and Wallet
