“iOS 8.2 is here! Hurray!” Greg Kumparak reports for TechCrunch. “It’s got bug fixes! It’s got stability enhancements! It’s got… an app that you can’t delete that currently does nothing but play promotional Apple Watch videos!”
“Joining the dozen or so perma-apps that Apple includes on the iPhone is ‘Apple Watch,’ an app that doesn’t actually do anything yet,” Kumparak reports. “Have you already seen plenty of stuff about the Apple Watch? Don’t intend to buy one? Too bad! You can’t delete it.”
“At this point, the list of undeletable apps is getting a bit silly,” Kumparak reports. “Weather! Clock! Maps! Notes! Reminders! Stocks! Passbook! Newsstand! iBooks!”
