Being a staunch advocate of civil rights, Apple CEO Tim Cook defensive decision against China over VPNs isn’t surprising.
Tim Cook has defensive policy that Apple might not remove the apps
Chinese government has demanded Apple to take out VPN software from the App Store. Earlier, Apple has already taken out many apps from its app store in China that could affect China’s Internet censorship laws.
Frequently, Virtual Private Networks allow iPhone and iPad users to use surveillance in places have tight restrictions on internet use. The company has criticized over removal of several VPN apps. But Apple said they had to comply with the country’s regulations.
Apple chief executive Tim Cook said,
“We would obviously rather not remove the apps, But like we do in other countries we follow the law wherever we do business’’.
The main issue is that regular citizens in China have discovering new ways. They want to poke holes in country’s Great Firewall of China. The Great Firewall of China blocks doubtful content. It is also heavily monitored.
Cook revealed that some folks have tried to associate it to last year U.S. situation. Both situations are different. Last year, in case of U.S., their law supported us. It is also very clear in the case of China. Moreover, I am hopeful that over time, the restrictions in China will reduce.
