Apple began contacting developers who offer RSS news reader apps. They inform that their apps will no longer be available in the China App Store. In other words, this is the latest move from China to crack down on the App Store and get tighter control over.
With the recent tension between the United States government and China over TikTok and WeChat, another report suggests that Chinese regulation over the China App Store could continue to get even more strict.
Before that in August, Apple complied with orders from the Chinese government and removed over 26,000 games from the App Store in a single day.
