Please tell me there is a way I can hide those two Apple Watch apps. No point on having them if I don't get an Apple Watch.

Damn… Another app that can't be deleted. And if you go to Settings, it won't even list the app along with all the others. So they don't want you to see the size of the app. Damn you, Cook. :mad:

Boy, that's an ugly Apple Watch icon. Why couldn't that be optional from the App Store?

Aw well, it went in my :apple: folder.

Don't upgrade if you are on a Plus. Phone continuously restarts and flashes a red screen. Not even joking...



I have not had this happen to me yet.

How can you install 8.2 if you are on 8.3 Beta 2? Is there a developer release? Or anything?


If you are on 8.3 beta you should know how to install 8.2. If you don't, you shouldn't be running the beta. But since you asked, restore the iPhone using iTunes and it will install the latest non beta software which will now be 8.2

If there's no bug fixes, then Apple can jump in a hole. I'll wait.

Why would there be a release with no bug fixes?

I am semi new to Apple and not at home with my iMac. Could you remove the Apple Watch icon thru iTunes. Or, would it not even show since not installed.


nope, you can't remove the icon at all. you can only hide it.
