When iOS 10 arrives in earnest this fall, it will bring with it a feature that has been long requested by Apple users: the ability to delete the default apps that come pre-installed on your iPhone or iPad.
For most people, the desire to get rid of the default iOS apps has less to do with the fact that they somehow stink and more to do with maximizing precious space. With every bit of memory precious, why leave apps you don't use on your phone or tablet?
It's officially summertime. The temperatures are higher, the days are almost as long as they can possibly get, and schools are out almost everywhere. Time for a vacation, or holiday, as my British bosses would say.
That's if the weather cooperates. When it doesn't, it's nice to have some advance notice, and these days, that can be as close as your phone.

The TODAY Show co-anchor and renown weather man Al Roker has just released a new app called Al’s Weather Rokies exclusively for iOS devices. It is a cartoon-style game that incorporates real time-weather.
The game, which was created with The TODAY Show technology contributor Katie Linendoll and animator Steve Lunny, is based on a real-life experience Roker faced. The goal is to make sure a weatherman wakes up from his weather-laden dreams to get to work. It incorporates weather icons and unique characters known as "Rokies" to create the gameplay.
Roker clearly loved the process of creating the game. “Creating an app that fused animation and weather was an exciting opportunity I could not pass up. I loved being part of the creative process and sketching some of the mascots featured in the game,” he said in a press release. “I challenge everyone to WAKE ME UP!”
Al’s Weather Rokies is available on the App Store for $0.99.
