Annoyed of the Flipboard Briefing screen on your Galaxy S6 and S6 edge TouchWiz launcher? Well, it cannot be detached from the launcher but we found a quick solution to disable it.

Disabling it will cease its functioning. It’ll still be there on the left-most page on your homescreen but it’ll function-less and so won’t cause any lag either.

Disable Flipboard Briefing app from TouchWiz Launcher

  1. Open Settings page on your Galaxy S6.

  4. Open “Briefing” app info page and tap the “DISABLE” button. It may show a warning, select OK. It may also ask to uninstall updates, select uninstall.

Done. Flipboard’s Briefing app is now disabled on your Galaxy S6 and S6 edge TouchWiz launcher.
