Apple executes New Year’s Eve apps purge in China

On the final day of the year, Apple launched tens of thousands of items from the Chinese edition of its App Store to satisfy Beijing’s demands.

Most of them were unlicensed games.

Yet human rights groups also said that the company needs to be more open about whether several other apps have been deleted before the deadline of 31 December.

Previously, the U.S. tech company has said that it is subject to local laws, but also challenges takeover orders.

“Apple is finally catching up with the regulations that are already enforced on China’s many Android stores,” Craig Chapple, a market research analyst at Sensor Tower, told BBC.

“The firm may have felt pressure from Chinese authorities, which for years have been increasingly enforcing these rules.”
