I have disabled many of the system apps and replaced them with ones I feel are better. I have also used the App Systemizer module from Magisk to turn them into system apps. I was told by someone in a private email that if I update the OS as documented here: https://www.thecustomdroid.com/install-ota-update-rooted-android-device-guide/ then they will be deleted. They don’t have to be system apps and I can unsytematize thembut I like things to be aesthetically pleasing and I stops minus signs appearing next to them when if I move apps links around on the screen and I can’t accidentally delete them. Does anyone know if what I was told is true?
I will test it out next time I update the OS. But there might be an issue here.
