What Will You Do With Your Life Now That You Can Delete The Stocks App?

The de-Stocksing is soon upon us.

Posted on June 13, 2016, at 6:16 p.m. ET

When iOS 10 comes this fall, you'll finally be able to delete the Stocks app!

Until now, the iPhone has come with a bunch of crummy apps that you can't delete: Stocks, Compass, inexplicably, the Apple Watch app (even if you don't HAVE an Apple Watch) and more.

Last year, Apple CEO Tim Cook told BuzzFeed News in an interview that, "This is a more complex issue than it first appears." Letting you delete the Stocks app wasn't simple, but it was something Apple was going to work on in the future.

Now that blissful day has arrived.

Last year, BuzzFeed ran a poll asking which un-deletable app you'd want to delete most. Stocks was the clear winner, with the Apple Watch app a close second.

  1. So, what will YOU do once you delete your Stocks app?
