Apple has been facing pushback regarding its decision to remove a Hong Kon protestors tracking app from its App Store. BuzzFeed News reported that Apple’s efforts are also extended to its new Appl TV+ service. According to their report, Apple has instructed new Apple TV+ shows to avoid portraying China in a negative light.

This isn’t a new development it’s reportedly something Apple started telling many of its new show creators last year. The specific wording of Apple’s instructions is quite unclear it can be summed as “avoid portraying China in a poor light” according to the report.

These instructions were given to Eddy Cue, and Morgan Wandell (Apple’s head of international content development). Apple has had a pattern of this behavior as the company is trying to tiptoe around the Chinese government. It’s also a common practice in Hollywood in general. It’s a fairly well established and accepted practice.

BuzzFeed News also spoke to an app developed who stated the following:

“We just get a phone call from Apple and they say ‘We just got a call from the Chinese government’ and five minutes later our app is off the App Store,” one US technology executive told BuzzFeed News. “It’s not a line of communication that would be open to any discussion.”

Apple is continuing to face pushback from its decision to remove the HKmap.live service from its app store. It’s likely to face more scrutiny for the above decision (despite it being a standard practice). What are your thoughts on Apple’s recent decisions regarding HkMmap.live and its Apple TV+ services?
