Apple Blocks Google's Internal iOS Apps For Breaking Rules

Apple breaks Google’s internal iOS apps for the same reason it broke Facebook’s apps

For instance, Facebook was recently discovered to have gone against Apple's App Store policies, specifically as they relate to enterprise certificates, to gather as much data as possible from a wide range of device owners.

Although most media coverage was focused on the Facebook app gathering user data, it looks that Apple was more annoyed by the fact that Facebook (and Google) has abused its enterprise developer certificates.

Just one day after its Facebook report, a investigation uncovered a similar research program.

Apple allows companies the ability to exert special control over employee devices in order to add additional security and control. Other apps blocked include a transportation app for Google employees called Gbus, and an app for Google's internal cafe.

Google has since disabled the app and apologized to users following the backlash.

Other public workers attending the pro-government demonstration said they had been forced to go there by their bosses. Associated Press writers Scott Smith, Joshua Goodman and Jorge Rueda contributed reporting from Caracas, Venezuela .

"Apple's view is that we violated their terms by sideloading this app, and they decide the rules for their platform, We've worked with Apple to address any issues; as a result, our internal apps are back up and running".

Facebook employees couldn't access even their calendars or company transit schedules, according to a report by The New York Times.

Obviously, blocking Google's access to iOS meant that everything from booking transport and food deliveries to in-development versions of Google Maps and Gmail were not working.

The row has been seen as a major escalation between Apple and its major rivals over protecting user data. When this was reported earlier this week by TechCrunch, both companies stopped the activity.

"There was nothing "secret" about this; it was literally called the Facebook Research App", Arielle Argyres, a Facebook spokeswoman, said in a statement. Users of Android devices can side-load apps from outside the Google Play Store or other Android like the Amazon App Store or GetJar.

No Measles Cases Reported So Far to Chelan-Douglas Health District
Early symptoms include a fever, runny nose and malaise, followed by a rash that starts around the head and moves down the body. There has been one confirmed measles case in Multnomah County, Ore., and another in King County.

All that's really happened is that Apple has slapped Facebook and Google for behavior that blatantly violates agreements the companies had signed, but apart from the elimination of the Facebook Research and Screenwise Meter iOS apps, nothing else has changed. It is now punishing Google, too.

On Monday it was revealed that Facebook had used its enterprise access to distribute a market research app to the public, including teenagers.

Facebook has updated its iOS app to finally bring native higher resolution support iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR phones.

But what got Facebook and Google into hot water with Apple was the way both companies distributed their respective data collection apps.
