Users will be able to uninstall their default apps from the iPhone just like they do on their Android phones, there is no additional requirement for this.

According to an update by the MacRumors, the apps you would be able to uninstall are iCloud Drive, iTunes Store, iBooks, Contacts, FaceTime, My Friends, Calendar, Home, Mail, Maps, Music, Notes, News, Podcast, Reminders Memos, Watch app and Weather. But still, there are a lot of questions in users’ minds regarding this feature that is it safe to remove the default new iPhone apps from the system? The reason behind this curiosity is that removing a built-in iPhone app from the device will remove the user-related data and configuration files. Also, if you remove the contact app then it will remove the individual contacts as well.

Many users have experienced this on their Android devices that the contact info and the user-related credentials were gone away with the deleted app. I hope, it will not happen on Apple devices.

If you are using the previous versions of the Apple operating system and want to switch on this new iOS 10 to get this feature, the minimum required RAM should be more than 512 MB.

Modern phones like iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and iPhone SE are already having RAM of more than 512 MB and can handle iOS 10 without any hassle. Phones those are having RAM of more than 512 MB and have already upgraded to iOS 8, will work well on iOS 10 as well.

Now if I talk about more features then I am sure that Apple will improve its voice assistant Siri as Apple does every year. It is expected that Siri will handle your voicemails and tell the caller ‘why are you not picking the phone.
