Google clarified its position regarding the new Apple Store Policies and confirmed the update of its iOS application starting next week
Google is fully prepared to comply with Apple's privacy
Google plans to comply with Apple's rules
Recently, Apple's App Store policy requires that applications on the App Store explain how user data is collected and used. A previous article signed by Fast Company suggested that Google was not ready to comply with these new rules, which explains why the American giant was not yet updating its applications on iOS.
The media then relied on the fact that none of the group's applications had been updated since December 7, one day before the new apple brand policy came into effect. On the other hand, many changes to the apps took place between mid-November and that date.
As reported by TechCrunch, Google has updated two of its apps since the date of the new App Store policy. These are Google Slides on December 14 and Socratic by Google on December 15. On the other hand, it is true that none of them concern the privacy labels now imposed by Apple.
However, the fact that Google has not published updates of its iOS applications is not suspicious either. The American company does not make any major changes between the end of December and the beginning of January so as not to risk blocking users while teams are on vacation. Pinterest and Amazon haven't updated their respective services either since the change pushed by Apple.
