Apple Copying Amazon Selling TV Subscriptions In App

Apple has reportedly started to more carefully monitor App Store apps that share location data with third parties.

We shouldn't have to wait too much longer to find out whether the change is coming to fruition, as Apple tends to make all of its software announcements at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), scheduled to commence on June 4.

Obviously, users have a right to know if their location is shared with a third party, and their permission will be obligatory for all such purposes. In an email sent to app developers, Apple states that they must remove any code, frameworks, or SDKs that relate to the sharing of user data with third parties if they want to continue to offer their app for download in Apple's store.

A new report from Bloomberg claims Apple is planning to sell paid subscription streaming services through its TV app available on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. This crackdown is said to be in relation to the GDPR laws or General Data Protection Regulation that is happening in the European Union. The new rules force technology companies to obtain explicit informed consent before they're able to collect data from a user. There will be cause for concern if it's determined a significant number of iOS apps failed to properly inform users that they were not only harvesting location data but also sharing it with other companies. App developers who are not compliant with these guidelines have since received alerts from Apple, informing them that they are breaking the rules "upon re-evaluation".
