Apple says apps ignoring new tracking rules will be removed from App Store

Thursday 10 December 2020 | 10:23 CET | News
Apple will remove apps that don't comply with its upcoming anti-tracking policy for iOS 14 from the App Store, Apple software engineering chief Craig Federighi told UK paper The Telegraph. From early 2021, developers will be required to use Apple's AppTrackingTransparency framework if their app collects data about end-users and shares it with other companies. Under this framework, apps have to request user authorisation to access app-related data for tracking the user or the device.
