With the upcoming iOS 10 users will have the ability to delete apps that come pre-loaded on your iPhone or iPad, but According to Apple’s Senior Vice President of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi it turns out that deleting the apps doesn’t actually delete them.

He added that deleting the apps does remove them from the home screen and trash associated user data, but since the pre-loaded services are backed into iOS the binary of the application remains present.

Explaining further he noted that the apps are part of the binary security signing reasons and the structure also explains why built-in apps only receive feature updates when iOS itself is updated.
