Apple Blocks News App In China

According to the New York Times, the iPhone’s news app appears to have barred all users in China from accessing it, a sweeping move that Apple possibly undertook to avoid a patchwork of censorship wherein particular articles deemed unacceptable by the Chinese government would be blocked. What do you think?

“Understandable. It’s hard not to fold under the pressure of something the Chinese government might eventually do.”

“Apple is boldly rethinking the way we do state censorship.”

“It’s a shame all those users will never know about this big win for their country.”
