Watch this space
I am really bored with Apple Watch already. Talk about ramming it down your throat! Now I have to put up with the app being forced onto my iPhone 6 in iOS 8.2. It was bad enough with U2’s uncalled for loading of their album – it’s not that I don’t like U2, it’s just the way Apple take an autocratic Big Brother stance that they seem to know better! I don’t use Stocks, Game Center or Health and I will never buy an Apple Watch! So come on, Apple, give us the choice of removing this ‘bloatware’. Mike Kelly Christian Hall says… The U2 deal seems to have backfired and Apple did introduce a way to remove the album, eventually. You can’t blame Apple for wanting to add the Watch app to its default line-up for iPhone 5 and up though. If you don’t like the app you can always hide it in a folder. In fact, a lot of people make an ‘Apple’ folder that you pile apps like Stocks and Health into. Your Home screen is there for you to personalise after all. We do think Apple could have made a nicer Watch app icon though! Also, the Watch won’t be for everyone but Apple has a great record of silencing the detractors.
