TechBuzz: Apple Is Finally Letting Us Do What We've Wanted

You know those pesky "default apps?"

Apple will finally let us have what our hearts have desired since we started using iPhones: We will soon be able to delete default apps!

According to BuzzFeed, iOS 10 will have so many updates, but the biggest one will be that (mostly) 23 apps can now be removed - meaning there's a lot less "junk" in your phone.
