During today's keynote, Apple released several new apps into the App Store under their developer account. The apps are all stock iOS apps that presently come pre-installed under iOS 9.

The list includes:

- Weather
- Stocks
- Mail
- Maps
- Notes
- Voice Memos
- Watch
- Music
- FaceTime
- iTunes Store
- Calendar
- Contacts
- Videos
- Calculator
- Compass
- Tips

If you try to download an existing iOS app, the "Get" button is greyed out, indicating you already have the app. Several readers have confirmed that you can now delete these apps in iOS 10, and later redownload them from the App Store. Apple could also choose to upgrade the apps from the App Store rather than waiting for iOS updates.

Soooo if you uninstall let's say the mail app, will iOS ask you what to complete the action with? Since alot of Apple apps reley on the standard installed apps, what happens when one or several are gone?

Finally they can update stock apps specifically without releasing a whole new iOS version.

Why didn't Apple talk about this? Why did they spend so much time on useless emoji?

Looks like another step towards eventually allowing default third party apps. That would've been a big announcement today, though. Maybe iOS 11. But maybe they saved this announcement for the fall release, just incase it wasn't ready.

This could just be an easier way to update the built-in apps without having to update the entire iOS.
