One benefit users of stock Android devices have had for the past few iterations of the OS is the System UI Tuner—a hidden menu that allows for extra customization of simple things like which icons are shown in the status bar, powerful notification controls, and more.

In the stock Android UI Tuner, you can do a number of simple things, like enable/disable a certain icons in the status bar. For example, you can hide icons that only show up circumstantially, like the casting or hotspot icons, or hide true system icons like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cellular, and the like.
