Apple removes podcast app Pocket Casts from China App Store
Jun 11, 2020
New Delhi, June 11 (ANI): Apple removed Pocket Casts from the app store in China due to govt pressure. Cyberspace Administration of China determined that it can be used to access content deemed illegal in country and demanded Apple to remove the app. It is the 2nd major podcast app to be removed from China's App Store this month. "We believe podcasting is and should remain an open medium, free of government censorship. As such we won't be censoring podcast content at their request. We understand this means that it's unlikely that our iOS App will be available in China, but feel it's a necessary step to take for any company that values the open distribution model that makes podcasting special," Pocket Casts said in a statement posted to Twitter.
