Apple playing politics with the FB ban

I’m sure you have all heard than Apple recently placed a ban on some Facebook internal apps due to Facebook “violating” is policy.

But it seems impossible because Apple has known this forever. Why the ban now?

Let’s be honest. Apple is just playing politics here. They have been on the news for the past 3 days about iPhone FaceTime Privacy.

Wouldn’t it make sense for them to make the headlines about Facebook instead of them? This is the game they are playing.

    FB violated the crap out of Enterprise license rules. FB is in the news every week with another major privacy scandal, almost all instances nefarious rather than unintended bugs. Apple got wind that FB violated the crap out of their rules and they responded. This is playing politics how?

    Yeah Apple under Tim Cook. has been very negative on Facebook.
    He’s done such a good job safeguarding privacy what with the FaceTime tracks your audio when you don’t accept a call.

    Sounds like they are creating distractions so we won’t notice their decline in sales.

    I mean, Apple rejects thousands of apps from their appstore every month...

      Atleast I can talk to a human if they reject the app and I can sort the things. But in case of Google a stupid bot will reply and without any proper reason many developer accounts are suspended.

    Facebook violated Apple enterprise program terms. Apple did the needful.

    Too much hate against Apple. This is the right move by Apple. Apple is the savouir of human kind.

    Apple saved us from evil IBM. Apple tried to save us from Microsoft. Sadly Microsoft just dominated world. Anyway now it is time for Apple to save us from Google and Facebook.
