Next iPhone update to include parental controls; Risque content might finally be on the way

Mon, May 4, 2009


Hot on the heels of Apple rejecting an update to the NIN iPhone app due to objectionable content, it seems that Apple is planning to loosen up its puritanical grip on the app store with the forthcoming iPhone OS 3.0 update.

iLounge reports that a Newspaper app which allowed access to over 50 newspapers worldwide was rejected by Apple due to topless photos that were found in the pages of the tabloid heavy and UK based “The Sun.”  In a subsequent letter to the developer, Apple wrote that in light of new parental control features in the upcoming iPhone 3.0 update, it “would be appropriate to resubmit your application for review once this feature is available.”

That being the case, we can only hope that the next iPhone update will put an end to Apple’s haphazard track-record of rejecting so called offensive apps with objectionable content.
