@ow leaked this on Twitter a minute ago. Here's a screenshot of the App Store page: Interesting to see Apple unbundling its pre-installed apps. It's not showing up in the App Store for me yet, but likely very soon.

@rrhoover @ow I hope they unbundle them all. Would be great to get a new iPhone and set it up clean from no apps.

@jmacias @rrhoover @ow Totally agree. The ecosystem of apps is big enough that third parties have definitely surpassed the quality of Apple's internal apps. They should focus on more on core design language. The current flat design needs to really go away.

@jmacias @rrhoover @ow Would be amazing to not have the iOS Mail app opening by default - and be able to choose a default browser!

@jmacias @rrhoover @ow I am not super positive about that, but at least they'll be able to release app-specific updates, instead of having to wait for the system update.

@siburb @jmacias @rrhoover @ow That sounds like something I've heard of... something like... Android?

@incyc I just saw that in the App Store. It's crazy!
@incyc was hoping to see Game Center on that list..

@anton_bramsen Game Center is already removed from the latest beta
@incyc hadn't heard about that! Great news, thanks!

I have to use Apple Mail for work now. I'd love for them to invest in it and make it really great.

I think they are going to pre-install the app, but give users an option to uninstall it. The store listing will allow users who deleted the app to re-install it.
The benefit to this is that they can also update these apps without a full iOS update.
