Apple Withdraws Thousand Of Game App From China Store

The consequences that have led and created tiff between the two countries India and China have led them to ban products, apps, etc of one another. The controversy had caught fire after the pandemic situation of COVID-19 in continuation of the Ladakh-China controversy which has taken place lately.

According to the data by the Research Firm, Qimai Apple has removed 29,800 apps from its Chinese app store on Saturday, including more than 26,000 games.

Apple has taken out the apps due to the unlicensed games that were running by the Chinese authorities and on the same hand, it is not legal to do so.

The game publishers were given a deadline till the end of June this year by Apple to submit them a government-issued license number which will allow the users to make in-app purchases.

The China Android app stores have agreed to the regulations. Still, we don’t have a clear picture of why apple has been forcing them to do so this year only.

During the first week of July, the makers of phones have pulled out more than 2,500 titles from its app store.

The games that got affected by this included titles from Zynga and Supercell, research firm SensorTower reported at the time.

The government of China is striving to put up strict regulations on its gaming industry to get rid of the sensitive content.

The people from this industry have come out with statements that the approval process for games looking to enable in-app purchases are is long which takes time and on the same hand is complicated which has been a major concern for all the large game developers.

Todd Kuhns who is Marketing Manager for AppInChina stated “This affects small- and mid-sized developers' incomes the most, but due to the difficulties of acquiring a business license, it's devastating to the whole iOS game industry in China”. AppInChina is a company that helps overseas companies to disperse their apps.
