Apple blocked 1.6 millions apps from defrauding users in 2021
Throughout 2021, the App Review team stopped more than 1.6 million risky or vulnerable apps and updates from landing on the App Store and potentially defrauding users.
More than 343,000 iOS apps were blocked by the App Store App Review team for privacy violations last year, while another 157,000 were rejected for attempting to mislead or spamming iOS users.
It also blocked over 34,500 applications from getting indexed on the App Store because they were using undocumented or hidden features. 155,000 more apps were removed for bait-and-switch tactics, such as adding new features or capabilities after approval.
