Hide stock iOS apps without jail breaking

Since my very first iOS device I suffered the same annoyances as countless other newly found apple owners. That was the forced acceptance of applications that served a specific purpose to a specific audience, such as the stocks and shares or newsstand etc.

Now obviously getting rid of these apps could be done by jail breaking the device and simply removing them or hiding them etc. however jailbreaking isn’t really for the faint hearted and cam pose issues if your not tech savvy.

Which is where this little trick comes in. Thanks to this site its now possible to hide those annoying ‘stock’ apps from your iOS devices launch pad. Granted this is only a temporary fix, as a reboot will bring them back. However, Im pretty sure I could count how many times I reboot in a month on one hand, so its a small price to pay having to reapply the ‘fix’.

All you need to do is visit this site select the app you want to hide from the list

    Definitely prefer and recommend jailbreaking – brings so much more. For me a few highlights are:
    – change default browser
    – add ad blocker
    – improved wifi reception

    Oh, and permanently hide stock apps… 😉
