Apple may soon let users hide some native apps

Have you been trying to get rid of some native iOS apps? No luck? Ended up in putting them all in a folder named “Apple?”

This pain may be over in iOS 10. The Verge reports that Apple has added some code to iTunes’ metadata. The key “isFirstPartyHideableApp,” is currently set to false but the intention is clear: at least some of the first-party apps may be hideable.

These API adjustments could suggest that some default apps, like Compass, Voice Memos, and Stocks, will soon be able to be completely hidden. The keys are currently set to “false,” but AppAdvice speculates they could be turned on to coincide with Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June when it announces the release of iOS 10.
