Update on Facebook Latest Attack on Apple – Latest News Update On Facebook – Facebook Attacks Apple For Having Restrictive Policies As Its Game App Arrives On

Update on Facebook Latest Attack on Apple – Latest News Update On Facebook  Facebook has released its Gaming app on iOS, but it sure isn’t happy about it. As a matter of fact, the app has no games at all on iPhones and iPads.

That’s because Apple wouldn’t approve the app with any games, for some of the same reasons that it has denied approval to Google Stadia and Microsoft’s xCloud, among other services.

Facebook Attacks Apple With Academic Research; Commissioned Study Claims New iOS 14 Privacy Features Are Anticompetitive. Facebook is employing some creative new tactics in its extended battle with Apple over the new iOS 14 limitations on personalized advertising.

“Unfortunately, we had to remove gameplay functionality entirely in order to get Apple’s approval on the standalone Facebook Gaming app — meaning iOS users have an inferior experience to those using Android,” Facebook CEO Cheryl Sandberg said in a statement.

The company was planning to launch the iOS app at the same time as the Andriod app in April. However, Apple rejected it over and over again for going against its Apple Store rule on third-party software.

That rule states that HTML5 games are allowed as long as “code distribution isn’t the primary purpose of the app.”

Facebook countered that around 95%of app activity on Android is from hosting and watching game streams, so gaming itself isn’t the primary aim of the app.

It appealed the rejections, but Apple disregarded them, so Facebook elected to launch the app anyway while informing users what was going on.

With Facebooks’s Gaming app, some major players are fighting Apple’s strict store policies over gaming. Microsoft and Google were forced to delay or compromise on their XCloud and Stadia apps, and NVIDIA’s GeForce Now service has yet to launch on iOS, either. A reckoning could come soon, though, one way or the other.

Apple has responded to Facebook’s critiques of its upcoming privacy changes by saying that is “standing up for our users,” in a statement shared with The Verge.

Facebook has been criticizing the company ahead of a future iOS update that will require users to give their permission for apps to collect data about them.

Facebook took out full-page newspaper ads today attacking Apple, claiming that the changes will “limit businesses’ ability to run personalized ads and reach their customers effectively.”

Here is Apple’s full statement:

We believe that this is a simple matter of standing up for our users. Users should know when their data is being collected and shared across other apps and websites — and they should have the choice to allow that or not.

App Tracking Transparency in iOS 14 does not require Facebook to change its approach to tracking users and creating targeted advertising, it simply requires they give users a choice.

Apple’s statement comes as Facebook reportedly plans to run another anti-Apple ad on Friday, according to BuzzFeed News editor John Paczkowski.

This new ad will reportedly claim that Apple’s software update will “change the internet as we know it for the worse” because places like blogs and cooking sites will have to charge for subscriptions or in-app purchases instead of running personalized ads that would allow them to offer content for free.
