New Delhi. Apple has removed about 4500 games from the Apple Store under Internet policy. According to a TechNode report, over 3,000 games have been removed from the China App Store in just two days in the past week. Let us know that due to the pressure of internet policy issued by the Chinese government from July 1, Apple has had to remove more than 4500 games from its Chinese App Store.
The new rules mandate game developers to take approval from Chinese regulators before uploading their apps to the Apple App Store in China.
China approves 1,500 game licenses a year
Apple’s marketing manager Todd Kuhns has said that since July 1, the new rule of the Chinese government, we are removing many game apps from our stores every day. Sadly, China approves about 1,500 game licenses a year and the process takes six to 12 months, which takes a lot of time for the app to be uploaded to the store. We have removed 1,571 games on 1 July, 1,805 on 2 July, and 1,276 game apps on 3 July from our stores.
More than 20,000 apps may be affected
It is estimated that a total of more than 20,000 apps may be affected by China’s new sanctions. Let us know that at this time Apple hosts about 60,000 games in China, users have to buy them to download all these apps.
