To be able to use the new restriction the device must be Supervised!

Add the necessary bundle IDs like,, then plug in your device and apply the profile. The icons will simply disappear from the home screen…

Here are some of the Bundle IDs for iOS’ default apps: – Stocks – Tips – Videos – Native Email Client – Notes – Reminders – Calculator – Maps – Music – Wallet – Health – Phone – iTunes Store – Messages – Voice Memos – Weather – Podcasts – Game Center – Watch – Find Friends – iBooks – Find iPhone – Clock – Photos – Settings – Camera – FaceTime – Contacts – News


At the moment it is Beta, but I hope Apple will ship and add it to the MDM restrictions, too.
