    Sooooooooo now I have an Apple watch app on my phone. That I will never use. That I don't want. That I can't delete.

    First they put the worst album in the history of music with that Bono fella on my phone that I couldn't delete without and act of God and now this?

    If they sent the watch that's one thing, but "hay! Here's an app you'll never use that you dont need! Yay you!"

    No, not whining. At all really.

    My bad for thinking I get to control what goes on my phone.

    Thanks for the feedback on the bloatware though!

    There are several apps that I will never use and that I can't delete- Stocks, Compass, newsstand. Just stick them in a folder and move on. Don't sweat the small stuff.

    You always have the option of selling the phone and using something else you can "control".

    Seriously, just tuck the god damn app in a folder and forget about it like the rest of us have.

    If this issue causes someone to have a conniption then some folks lead charmed lives.
    I'm happy for a platform that offers me native apps to my heart's content.
    Any core app I don't want I put in a folder.
    And the album I've played a million times. Love that Bono fellow and his band. Thank you Apple for the free music!!!

    If you want to feel better about the few apps the are baked into iOS, buy an Android from one of the carriers and deal with all that bloatware. I have 6+ and a Note 4. The at&t Note 4 is LOADED with bloat that can't be deleted. Fortunately Android has a disable feature for many apps (not all), but the disabled app is still on the device. Android bloat is one of the reasons I now prefer iOS to Android.

    But you ARE clearly whining...A LOT. The album they added was easily deletable for those that wanted to, and this tiny little app can be put away in a folder where you'll never see it again if you so choose.

    This isn't the catastrophe you're making it out to be...nor is it some insurmountable annoyance that Apple has stricken you with.

    It's a small app...put it in a folder...move on with life.

    Does anyone know the size of the app? I think they should have made it come pre-installed but deletable like their productivity apps. However I just tuck it in a folder and never use it again.

    It can't be much. My storage capacity would have reflected it if it were huge. The biggest stock app we have is iBooks. It's only about 42 mb. All others are very small. I suspect the  app is very small.

    The overreaction here is yours... It doesn't take much to hide the freakin' Watch app... or, develop the wherewithal to simply ignore it.

    No, it's not that you don't like something Apple did. We can all find something Apple does or has done that we don't like or agree with. It's that this issue is insignificant and not worth fretting over. If it were an app like Pages, that took 300 mb of space, then it would be significant. Just stick it in your unused folder, move the folder way over on the last screen page by itself and forget about it.

    More bloat for everyone. Yet they will say its not that bad, yet if it was an android phone/app it would make a front page story ha. But it is apple, so yeah, not going to let you uninstall the app. I think it would have been better to make it an app in the app store that those with an apple watch could go and download, but such is life lol.

    I know what you mean but there is substantially less bloatware on an iPhone than there was on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3. I had 32 apps that could not be deleted at all and NONE of them were carrier apps as the phone was bought unlocked.

    At the end of the day, we all have apps we use and don't use, across all devices and platforms and basically we all just have to suck it up, stick them in a folder and forget about them. On my Android phone, I could hide the folders/apps I don't use if I install an aftermarket launcher (Nova Prime FTW) on the iPhone I can't. I long ago learned not to let it bother me and I stick any new apps I am unlikely to use in my "Where are they now?" folder.

    That's because Android bloat is what makes the OS truly bloated. Like when you get a 16GB device and you have 7GB available from the get-go because of the carrier and manufacturing bloat. Apple does a good job in how it manages the storage on the small storage devices. The fact that they freed up space in I believe what was 8.1 or maybe a point update after that shows that they're aware of the problem and care enough to free up space. On Android you can't just hide the bloat. It takes up space. On iPhones, the bloat (Apple apps) is there, but once it's hidden it literally has no effect on your storage.

    Agree, but seems they only did it to avoid a lawsuit, and only after people brought the lawsuit to the table, otherwise people still probably wouldn't be able to OTA on low storage models. Not to mention the apps on Apple take up storage just like they do on android. Just because you put them in a folder doesn't make them free up space. It's similar to disabling apps on android.
