Want to delete pre-installed and unwanted system apps from your Android phone? Well, there is no direct way to uninstall preinstalled apps. In this blog, we will discuss the process of removing inbuilt apps from Android phones. Let’s get started.
What Is a Bloatware in Android?
A Bloatware is a pre-installed app that is installed from the manufacturer’s choice. These apps can’t be uninstalled entirely from a phone because these apps are a part of your phone’s ROM, which is only readable memory of a device. Most of these apps are useless or unnecessary, and they also eat a lot of space in your internal storage. A highly filled internal storage causes a phone to misbehave and hang.
How to Delete Pre-installed Apps from Android via Settings?
In reality, no brand allows a user to delete the bloatware or inbuilt apps. But they provide a button to disable them forever. Let’s learn how to disable these unwanted and annoying apps.
- Go to “Settings” in your Smartphone.
- Navigate to the “Apps” option (This option may vary by the device to device).
- Tap on the app that you want to disable or remove.
- Tap on permissions and disable all permissions.
- Now tap on “Storage” and “clear all data.”
- Now tap on “Force stop.”
- Hit the “Disable” button and you are done here.
Do the same for the rest of your unwanted apps. By following the above guide, you can free a lot of RAM of your Smartphone. The free space in your internal storage will also increase because you have cleared a lot of app data that was essentially useless for you.
Is there any way to uninstall Bloatware entirely from a phone?
Yes, there are many ways to do that, but it is not recommended to entirely remove the Bloatware because it can result in ROM failure and many other problems. We never want your precious device to get destroyed. So, never try to use any third party apps to root your phone for uninstalling a system app.
Wrapping It Up
There is no way to remove a system pre-installed app from an Android Phone. Never root an Android phone which can easily void your warranty and also make your phone useless. The best way to get rid of the unwanted pre-installed app is to disable them by going through the above guide.
