Apple released a new beta of the Apple Configurator v2.2 and iOS 9.3.
The Beta includes a new restriction, that will allow you to hide Apple system apps like Watch, Stocks, Tips, News, Passbook ....

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

Create a configuration profile in Apple Configurator 2.2 Beta with a restrictions payload set to “Do not allow some apps” under “Restrict App Usage” in the Apps section of the Restrictions. Add the necessary bundle IDs like com.apple.tips, com.apple.stocks, 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:

com.apple.stocks – Stocks
com.apple.tips – Tips
com.apple.videos – Videos
com.apple.mobilemail – Native Email Client
com.apple.mobilenotes – Notes
com.apple.reminders – Reminders
com.apple.calculator – Calculator
com.apple.Maps – Maps
com.apple.Music – Music
com.apple.Passbook – Wallet
com.apple.Health – Health
com.apple.mobilephone – Phone
com.apple.MobileStore – iTunes Store
com.apple.MobileSMS – Messages
com.apple.VoiceMemos – Voice Memos
com.apple.weather – Weather
com.apple.podcasts – Podcasts
com.apple.gamecenter – Game Center
com.apple.Bridge – Watch

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