    Yes, its a very good deal. Carriers can't force apps that you may not want, or those that you can't uninstall or disable.

    True, but over the years, there have been a plethora of Apple apps that, arguably could fall into that category. Those that quickly come to mind are GameCenter and Newsstand.

    I hear you there. Relatively speaking, Apple's own apps could be considered bloat to a degree. I'll take that over carrier and OEM bloat on Android.

    The only bloatware on an iPhone is the Stocks.app. Anybody who would use it are already entrenched in other apps. I could agree with Newsstand HankAZ because the proper support from the publishers is just not there(I wish it was and wish it would in a year or two).

    Bloat ware are just unwanted apps that just take up memory, correct?

    My next question is can we delete any unwanted bloat ware on iPhone?

    Not the Apple supplied apps. The best you can do is to hide them in a folder somewhere on your device. There might be some jailbreak tweaks to actually remove them, but, alas, there is no jailbreak (yet) for anything beyond iOS 7.1.2.

    The short answer is no. All pre-installed apple apps are unremovable. They are small though.
