How to Remove Stocks App on the iPhone

There are many new applications on Apple’s iTunes software, and you can easily download them onto your iPhone, which is a portable device that can also be used as a phone, PDA and iPod. With the built in stock apps, you might need room for your new applications or you just might not want them in your handheld device. To add or remove apps, you need to sync with Apple’s iTunes software, which acts as a control panel for Apple’s products. You can also download or remove these applications by using a USB chord and connecting it with your iPhone.

This will allow both devices to synch, and after configuring the device, iTunes will automatically open on your computer, and you can then access your handheld device on the computer where iPhone is shown in the software’s list of devices. If you wish to remove the iPhone app, it can be done from there, and you will be able to permanently remove the app.
