OEMs will preload their smartphones with apps in order to improve the user experience. But not all the apps and features those are preloaded are important to all the users. Some users will have their own apps to execute a specific task. For instance, most users prefer Inbox by Google over Gmail and Google Calendar over Custom Calendar that is installed by OEMs.

The presence of the unwanted apps will annoy the users and also consume the memory and drain the battery. One method to remove these apps is simple uninstalling them by rooting the phone. But many users will not want to root their phone as it is a risky and complicated process.

Step 4: Select any Gapp like Gmail, Google Play Music or Google Play Movies & TV, and you will get an option to disable it. You can also disable some MIUI apps like Contacts and Calendar.

Remember that not all preinstalled apps can be disabled by following these steps. You can disable only some apps.
