You cannot delete the core apps supplied by Apple. The clock app is one of those.
You can move it to a screen that you access infrequently if you want to see it somewhat less often.

It is a yahoo clock by the looks of things.
Actually, a Swiss railway is threatening to sue Apple. They say it's their clock face.
I'm guessing you weren't one of the people demanding that Apple provide a clock on the iPad for the past two years?

This question is a joke right?
Since the initial release of the iPad there have been many requests for an integrated clock app.

Isn't new iOS and launch of new product time amazing? I've been hanging out on the iPhone forum the last few days. Oh the angst over YouTube and Maps is incredible. But, I must admit this is the first post I've seen where someone was not happy with having a clock (which will undoubtedly be redesigned pretty quickly as Meg is right about the legal issue).

It's almost refreshing.

Ios6 clock does stink, regards of what the experts say. Go to the APP store and download clocks 2. It has everything, including alarms AND it is easy to use. So sorry about those who want to criticize instead of help. Also, yes, as explained in one of the other entries, you can move the junk clock to a screen that you don't use as much. Apple is great but they too make mistakes.

That isn't an iOS 6 clock, that is an iPad clock. And it is really pretty simple to use and has alarms, including playing a song. If you like another clock you've purchased better that is just fine, move it out of your sight. And you are WAY out of step on this one if you think it was a mistake for Apple to include a clock.

I have this question too. I already have a clock I like and which does not contain a 'yahoo' advertisement. I would prefer not to have the yahoo clock present at all rather than put it on a back screen, but it does not appear to be an app that the user can delete (like a few others). Is there any way to completely eliminate apps like this from the machine?

That isn't an advertisement, it takes you to a calendar of events for today. I would imagine that Yahoo worked with Apple on the clock similar to the weather app on the iPhone. There is no way to legitimate way to remove it.

I prefer this plain and simple clock which works. I found every third party clock I tried excelled in one feature or another except being a good alarm or sleep timer. I believe mostly due to background process restrictions. I got tied of trying to find a reliable alarm clock or sleep that didn't have to be properly set up as a background app to work when the iPad was asleep. Finally a clock that has an alarm you can set then forget about it and it works. Sure there may be many out there, but you shouldn't have to test a dozen different apps to find one that works properly.
