    "Find Friends" is one of the stock apps that can supposedly be deleted now with iOS 10. However, I can't delete it. Find Friends and Health do not come up with the "x" to delete them when in "wiggle mode." I've seen on some websites that Health app cannot be deleted, but Find Friends supposedly can. What is the reason that it's not allowing me to delete it?

    did you use it at some point or someone has you on their Find Friends list?
    are you sure you're not looking at Find iPhone?

    I've never used it before. I'm positive I'm not confusing it with Find My iPhone because I definitely want that app.

    Odd, Find iPhone doesn't come up as being deletable on my device, but Find Friends does.

    I figured it out. I had to change the settings under Restrictions to "allow changes" for Share My Location. That allowed me to delete it
