Beyond stock iOS: Five apps to replace those soon-to-be removed stock apps

The day of removing stock iOS apps has arrived. The much-pleaded request has finally been answered by Apple with the introduction of iOS 10, and you can now remove (not delete) those unwanted stock apps like Tips and Stocks. Apple’s offerings aren’t necessarily bad, I actually enjoy the stock Mail app, but if you don’t, there’s myriad of replacement apps for those who want to go in a different direction.

We found four apps that could replace the stock iOS apps (or keyboard) that are great alternatives and offer added functionality. If you’re looking for a replacement to the Camera or Podcast, these apps might be just what you’re looking for.

Check out the video above and let us know if there are any other apps you use that could replace the stock iOS apps.
