Will Apple act on this. I had an app to keep passwords which I had not backed up for a while. While holding my iPhone I deleted it with it's data by mistake. What's the best way to prevent against this. Will Apple include a lock on the apps to prevent against this in the next OS?

You already have to hold it down, hit the "X" and then confirm that you want to delete it. I couldn't see Apple including any more steps.

Go to settings-general-passcode lock. Set a password. Then go to restrictions. Enable restrictions and uncheck 'deleting apps' button. Thts all.

Thank you all. I don't know how I misses the "Deleting Apps" option in "Restrictions". Jitu78's answer worked.
