Apple Comments on Removal of Apps Containing Sexual Content

##ICON_NAME## Apparently there have been recent interviews in which Phil Schiller, head of worldwide product marketing at Apple, has commented on the removal of apps that contain sexual content. Below are a few snippets of what he had to say.

Philip W. Schiller, head of worldwide product marketing at Apple, said in an interview that over the last few weeks a small number of developers had been submitting “an increasing number of apps containing very objectionable content.”

“It came to the point where we were getting customer complaints from women who found the content getting too degrading and objectionable, as well as parents who were upset with what their kids were able to see,” Mr. Schiller said.

Mr. Schiller said Apple had to prioritize its customers. “We obviously care about developers, but in the end have to put the needs of the kids and parents first,” he said.

When asked about the Sports Illustrated app, Mr. Schiller said Apple took the source and intent of an app into consideration. “The difference is this is a well-known company with previously published material available broadly in a well-accepted format,” he said.

  1. Praise God! I was getting so sick of seeing all that junk in the store. It filled the latest release sections every day.

  2. Maybe all that deleted apps will end up on Cydia.

  3. If you don’t like it, don’t download it!
    If you don’t want your children to have it, don’t allow it on their device!

    I see Playboy and Penthouse related apps are still there.

  4. make some Quality Adult apps instead of these existing rubbish then the parents will “shut up”
