If Apple app developers want to be distributed on the App Store, they must provide a method for users to delete their application accounts. Starting January 31, 2022, Apple will require developers to submit their app updates. The requirement was announced at WWDC 2021 in June.
Apple wants app developers to provide a method for users to delete app accounts
In many cases, app producers build their account deletion procedures with the intent of making the process as time-consuming as possible, frequently purposefully redirecting users to a browser or forcing them to communicate with someone in order to end their accounts. The company made a statement regarding the subject from its official website. It’s worth noting that Apple’s language is somewhat vague here—“initiate” could simply imply that apps must begin the deletion procedure within the app.
Apple is working on other security measures too
Apple has made it possible for users to rate and review preinstalled iOS applications through the App Store recently. In addition to the new standards, Apple has revived a long-missing “Report a Problem” button, which was gone away for years. The new button makes it easier for customers to notify the firm about applications that appear to be frauds, whereas the previous system simply allowed users to report a quality issue.
