Beijing - Arab Today

Apple Inc. is removing virtual private network (VPN) services from its app store in China, VPN service providers said on Saturday, accusing the US tech giant of bowing to pressure from Beijing to comply with stringent cyberspace regulations.
VPNs allow users to bypass China’s so-called “Great Firewall” aimed at restricting access to overseas sites.
VPN provider ExpressVPN said on Saturday that it had received a notice from Apple that its software would be removed from the China App Store “because it includes content that is illegal in China.”
“We’re disappointed in this development, as it represents the most drastic measure the Chinese government has taken to block the use of VPNs to date, and we are troubled to see Apple aiding China’s censorship efforts,” ExpressVPN said in a statement.
Another provider, StarVPN, said via its Twitter account on Saturday that it had also received the notice from Apple.
Apple declined to comment on the issue when contacted by Reuters on Saturday.
China users with billing addresses in other countries will still be able to access VPN apps from other branches of the App Store. A number of VPN apps were still accessible on the China App store on Saturday.
Apple is in the middle of a localization drive in China, and named a new managing director for the region — a new role — this month.
It is also establishing a data center with a local partner in the southwestern province of Guizhou to comply with new Chinese cloud storage regulations.
