15. Not really. Consumer studies show that Apple products are not used by the vast majority of RW types

because Apple iPhones and the rest are just too expensive. The crowd at the Capitol mostly use Android and other brands, along with PC computer products. But just in case...

Today, Apple informed Parler that the app would be removed from the App Store within 24 hours unless the company submitted an update with a moderation improvement plan. Sounds weak, sure, but then, Apple doesn't need Parler as much as Parler needs Apple.

Apple wrote to Parler's executives:
"We have received numerous complaints regarding objectionable content in your Parler service, accusations that the Parler app was used to plan, coordinate, and facilitate the illegal activities in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021 that led (among other things) to loss of life, numerous injuries, and the destruction of property,” Apple wrote to Parler. “The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet further illegal and dangerous activities.”


Parler won't be able to submit a satisfactory plan that Apple wants, so I predict that Apple boots Parler.
