Apple will let Parler back on the App Store

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN Business)Apple has approved Parler's return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday.

The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices.

The letter addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN explained that since the app was removed from Apple's platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler "has proposed updates to its app and the app's content moderation practices."

On April 14, Apple's app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch.

11. I would boycott Apple, but...

I'd have to do business with them first to be able to boycott them.

I proudly owned a Commodore 64 in the 80's and 90's. Moved onto building my own PC's when I retired my C64.

I've never bought an iPhone, iPod, iMac, iWatch or any piece of overpriced iCrap.

I've never wanted to. This just makes me want to own Crapple stuff even less.

So... That'd be what? A Nevercot? Whatever you call it, I've never given them a cent, and I certainly won't start now.

Screw you, Apple.
