Apple Podcast and TV keep adding themselves back to by dock after I have removed them each reboot.
I have been searching around and have seen multiple posts about this issue, but most of them are old and not working for me (such as Permanently remove icons from Dock, Removing Dock Items, How to stop maps photos and ibooks from loading in dock on startup etc)
Most of the posts resolve around updating the defaults.plist for the dock and then resetting it. However I was unable to change the plist (/System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/defaults.plist) as it is now in the Dock app which is on a read-only drive.
I have tried editing /Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist but it reverts every restart.
Is there anyway to stop these from being added back to the dock in Big Sur?
