APPLE BLOCKED FACEBOOK AND THEN GOOGLE

Have you wondered how major telecocomunication companies manage their privacy policies,apple, in recent times have had couple of issues relating to their developer enterprise certificate.


Apple’s decision to block Google’s developer certificate comes just a day after Google disabled its Screenwise Meter app following press coverage. Google’s private app was designed to check how people use their iPhones,  just like Facebook’s research app. Google’s app also uses Apple’s enterprise program, which enables the distribution of internal apps within a company.

in ealier statement about Facebook’s certificate removal, Apple did  cautioned that “any developer using their enterprise certificates to distribute apps to consumers will have their certificates revoked.” Facebook’s internal iOS apps have since resumed functioning, as Apple had restored its enterprise certificate

Apple is just sticking to its rules and applying them evenly to Facebook, Google, and likely many other companies that get caught  flawing Apple’s rules in the future.

There’s  more evidence that a number of companies are using Apple’s enterprise program to distribute apps to consumers. iOS developer Alex Fajkowski has noticed  that Amazon, DoorDash, and Sonos all send  beta versions of their apps to non-employees. Apple may be forced to take action against these apps,  or hide acces to the  entire enterprise program in the future.
