Apple removes over 700 apps from Chinese App Store

Continuing to clean the App store Chinese, Ma removed about 718 apps in your store that did not meet company guidelines some of them from major companies like Sogou (alternative search engine to Google in the country).

According to The Telegraph, Apple removed these applications after developers posted updates without going through the company's verification system (which must approve changes to changelog software) to verify that updates are legitimate and trouble-free. The news was released one day after a developer shared “tricks” applied to the App Store, some (well) malicious.

This issue is not specific to the Chinese App Store; In 2017, Ma banned developers from using SDKs that allowed them to remotely change application code without having to submit a new build to Apple.

In addition to the Sogou search engine, the shared trading platform app Pinduoduo (similar to Groupon in Brazil) was also removed from Ma's store in China.

As we said, this is the first time I have cleaned up iOS apps: last July several VPN apps were removed from the store, and a month later more than 25,000 illegal gambling apps were banned from the Chinese App Store. .
