All smartphones, whether it’s Android or IOS, all come with the pre-installed apps called “Bloatware Apps”. Some of these apps are very essential for certain important tasks on your phone, but this is not the case with all the other bloatware apps.

Many of these pre-installed apps have no use in our phone, for example, I have a Samsung Phone, and it has apps like Galaxy store, galaxy theme etc. These apps have no use for me, but there is no option to uninstall these apps until I root my phone or use a package disabler.
