I'm afraid that there is no way to delete any of the stock apps that come with every iPhone, at least with a stock iPhone. I believe that if you have a jailbroken iPhone there are options available which will allow the deletion of stock apps.

Thank you for your reply. I will look around Cydia and see if I can find something.

Indeed, there are lots of NAS options. I've been using a WD MyCloud NAS device for a while and it works rather well.

If you want to delete a system app you can do it without jailbreaking your device.

While some of the stock apps can be hidden so they don't appear on the home screen, none of them can be deleted from a non jailbroken device.

I put all the stock apps that I don't use into a folder and keep it on a "back page" so that I don't see them.
