Apple will soon force devs to include account deletion option in their apps
Apple will soon require developers to include an account deletion option in their apps if users can create one through them.

Apple is infamous for its strict guideline enforcement when it comes to its App Store. The company can be unforgiving when developers try to cross the limits it has set. For example, the Cupertino tech giant didn’t hesitate to ban Epic Games’ account when Fortnite implemented a third-party payment method. As a result, Epic Games lost the privilege to place its products on Apple’s store. The tech overlord’s strictness can be beneficial for users, though. This is especially apparent in an upcoming guideline that Apple is implementing next month. Developers who allow users to create an account through their apps will be forced to offer an account deletion option as well. The rule was announced a long while ago, and it’ll finally take effect starting June 30. That’s assuming the company doesn’t delay it yet again — of course.

This doesn’t mean much because Apple has no way of checking if the data is really deleted.
