No longer will your iPhone be filled with default apps you never use and can't get rid of. With Apple's iOS 10, unveiled Monday at its developers' conference, users can finally delete many apps that come standard on Apple devices, like Stocks, News, and Weather, writes Lily Hay Newman at Slate. And while you're still stuck with Camera, Messages, and Photos, per the Verge, Newman writes that "for the bulk of the bloat, change is coming. I can't wait to delete my Apple Crap folder." Other changes include raw photo support, expanded Lock screen options, automatically transcribed voicemails, and a feature in which your phone will show notifications on the lock screen when the phone is raised, without the touch of a button, per the Telegraph and CNET.
