Re: Pre installed Apps.

Hi @Snowfighter, let me see if i can help out here.

 

As you probably have noticed, you cannot uninstall What's New since it is a pre-installed application. You can however disable the notifications that What's New is sending out. In order to do this, from your home screen, tap the Apps-icon > Find and tap What's New > Tap the three horizontal lines in the top left corner > Tap Settings > Tap the switch beside "Show notifications" to turn it off.

 

I hope that this gave you somewhat of an answer to your question. If you have any other questions regarding your phone, feel free to ask! Slightly smiling Face
