Apple is purging hundreds of thousands of apps from the App Store

It may be the end of summer, but that isn’t stopping Apple from doing a bit of spring cleaning. Tomorrow, coinciding with the launch of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the company will begin purging the App Store of apps that it considers to be deceptive or out-of-date, which could potentially be hundreds of thousands of apps. The apps will be put on death row, and their developers will be given thirty days to update them or else they’ll be permanently removed from the App Store. However, even if an app is deleted from the App Store, users who have…

Apple responds to Spotify's accusations of being anti-competitive

Owning the App Store means that Apple has the power to control the success of apps released on iOS, and owning Apple Music means the company has a good reason to do just that. Doing so would be illegal, of course, but there are a number of ways to be anti-competitive without people catching on. While there’s no evidence that Apple does this, Spotify claims that the company is preventing Spotify from updating its iOS app in an effort to stifle it. Naturally, Apple has denied these accusations, and claims that Spotify is simply being subjected…

Spotify is accusing Apple of using its power to hinder its competition

There haven’t been many issues in this regard, but after preventing Spotify from releasing an update for its iOS app, Apple is now being accused of exhibiting “a troubling pattern of behavior” that Spotify considers to be anti-competitive. Apple Music competitor Spotify has accused Apple of rejecting an update to its official…

China is forcing Apple to monitor and report App Store users

By giving people a place to freely express themselves, and allowing them to find and communicate with similarly-minded people, the Internet serves as the perfect place for opposition and resistance movements to form. That’s why the Chinese government has been trying to monitor and control as much online activity as it can, especially since Xi Jinping came into power back in 2012. Its most-recent effort in this regard comes in the form of new laws that require app store owners to monitor their users and report their activity to the…

Apple's new patent could put an end to autocorrect mistakes

Autocorrect is incredibly useful when it works, but when it doesn’t work, it can cause problems that are always annoying, often amusing, and occasionally horrifying. I’m sure we’ve all had to send the “Whoops, damn autocorrect” text at least once in our lives, probably numerous times, but Apple has a new patent that might be able to fix the problem. It’s actually a rather simple solution that highlights autocorrected words in the same way it highlights misspelled words in an effort to make the sender double check to make sure…
