    Angry How can I remove the "Find My iPhone" and "Find My Friends" apps from my device?

    I have an iPad mini. I don't just want to turn off "Find my phone" and "Find my friends." I want them gone. I can't find where to shut them off, even. I only have the option to turn off "find my iPad." I do not own a smart phone. I do not want a smart phone. My mini is wifi only, no phone connection, so "find friends" doesn't seem like much help. I want to remove these apps.

    You can't remove them, only shut them off. Find my phone comes in handy if your device is lost or stolen. I'd personally recommend activating it and leaving it on.

    Default Remove find my phone app

    They are permanent apps now. Just hide them in a folder.

    Please, read the posts above, it's not possible to delete those apps, now they come by default.
