After prooving what they wanted, Apple restored the problem they had with Google and Facebook unbreaking their internal apps.
According to New York Times and Mike Isaac, Facebook is in the process of returning their internal apps into working order and Google stated that they were “working with Apple to fix a temporary disruption to some of our corporate iOS apps” according to Bloomberg .
On the other hand that cases were only hurting the companies terms and fortunately not the customers thoughts.
Both incidents took place after Facebook and Google were found to be running “research” apps which collected data from users. This went against Apple’s rules. An internal memo put out by Facebook noted that:
“Apple’s view is that we violated their terms by sideloading this app, and they decide the rules for their platform, We’ve worked with Apple to address any issues; as a result, our internal apps are back up and running. Our relationship with Apple is really important — many of us use Apple products at work every day, and we rely on iOS for many of our employee apps, so we wouldn’t put that relationship at any risk intentionally.”
From that position it seems that Facebook doesn’t really admit their faults and so Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has been outspoken about his opposition to companies whose business model is based on analyzing massive quantities of user data. As this goes on, it gives us a big disagreement going on between these two big companies with Apple having a bigger leverage than the other two.
