Can I just get rid of the app?
What is the purpose of the Nike + iPod setting on my iPhone? Does it only work if I have a pedometer? I have no intention of suddenly taking up running and I’d like to clear some space. Can I get rid of it? Tim Southern
Yes, it only does anything if you have the Nike + sensor kit to measure your strides. It’s only bundled with the iPhone and iPod, not the iPad (who goes jogging with an iPad?). But it’s a core app, so you can’t remove it. If you swipe the Nike + iPod setting off in Settings, the corresponding app will disappear from your home screen. But this doesn’t actually save you any storage space because the app is still there – it just doesn’t show its icon. There’s no way to actually uninstall it altogether.
