How to Stop App Suggestions on iPhone Lock Screen

by Fahad Saleem

The new versions of iOS like iOS 8 and above have a new feature of suggested apps, in which the system automatically suggests you apps based on your activity and location. This can be a nuisance for people who love the have their lock screen clean. Suggested apps feature just adds up to the clutter of your iPhone and has no value at all. It just tracks your location and activity and suggest you apps in a tiny, fainted icon just on the opposite side of the camera icon in the iPhone lock screen.
