There are a bunch of default Apps coming with your new iPhone 5 which are useless for you. Today I will teach you how to remove these unwanted Apps to enlarge your storage space.
A prerequisite for removing Apps: to jailbreak
Devices needed: iFunbox and choose one from iToos/iFile/Plist

Completely delete "Weather":

Note: If you want to add weather prediction to notification center or to see weather conditions in the status bar via a plug-in, "Weather icon", you'd better not delete "Weather" because once deleted, the functions cannot be accessed to.
The included "Weather" fails to serve as accuracy and wide-coverage.
1. Open "Application" via iFunbox and delete "weather. app". (The option of "Weather" remains when rebooting and opening "Setting". Don't worry. Go ahead.)
2. Open the notification and log out "Weather" from notification center.
3. Go to "System" > "Library" > "WeeAppPlugins". And delete the file of "WeatherNotifications.bundle"
4. Reboot and you will find no "Weather" icon in the Setting.

Completely Delete "Nike":

1. Open "Applications" via iFunbox and delete "nike.app"
2. Go to "System" > "Library" > "Core Services" > "Spring Board. app", drag "N94AP. Plist" to the computer desktop, open it via "Tablet", find "Nike-iPod" and turn "True" to "False".
3. Delete the original "N94AP.plist" and replace with the modified one.
Reboot and you will find no "Nike" icon in the "Setting".

Completely Shut Off Auxiliary Functions:

1. Go to "System" > "Library" > "Core Service" and delete "Assistive Touch. app" via iFunbox
2. Go to "System" > "Library" > "Launch Daemons" and delete "com. apple. Assistive touchd. Plist"
3. Go to "System" > "Library" > "Core Service" > "Spring Board. app". Drag "N94Ap. plist" to the computer desktop, open it via "Tablet", find "Accessibility", and turn "True" to "False".
4. Delete the original "N94AP. plist" and replace with the modified one.

Disable The Search Function of "Spotlight"

Note: The method to completely delete "Spotlight" has not been found so far. We need the help from the plug-in, "No Spot". To our delight, through the operation blew, the option of the search function disappear finally.
1. Install "No Spot" into "Cydia".
2. Go to "System" > "Library" > "Launch Daemons" and delete "com.apple.search.plist" and "com. apple.search.appindexer.plist"
3. Open "Application" > "Preferences. app" > "General. Plist" via "iFile". Tap "Attribute Table Editor" in the popup window. Then choose "Array", delete "11:" item and tap "Finish" in the Upper-Right corner.
4. After logging out, enter into "Setting" to check whether "Spot light" disappears.

Completely Delete "Stocks"

1. Open "Application" via iFunbox and delete "Stocks.app" (The option of "Stocks" remains when rebooting and entering into "Setting". Don't worry. Go ahead.)
2. Open the notification in "Setting" and shut it off in the notification center.
3. Go to "System" > "Library" > "WeeAppPlugins". Delete the whole file of "Stocks Wee. Bundle"
4. Reboot and you won't find "Stocks" icon in Setting.

Tips for Plist:

Some Apple fans complain that when they open up "Plist", it spews scrambled numbers and letters.
Solution: Use iFile to edit on iPhone or download and install Plist program on PC.

In brief, if you want to restore your default apps, you only need to restart your device.
