Apparently the App Store isn’t open carry.
Apple is making some developers of violent video games censor screenshots of their titles for the App Store, Pocket Gamer reports. Several iPhone game developers told Pocket Gamer they had to blur or remove images of guns before Apple would approve their apps to go online.
Here’s what the result looks like for developer Warchest Limited’s Tempo:
Apple has long had a written policy of keeping violent images out of the App Store so it can maintain its 4+ age rating. However, the company hasn’t always enforced that rule as strictly as it appears to be doing now. It’s unclear why Apple is now suddenly asking developers to adhere to its guidelines.
