Apple Pulls Down Quartz App from Store in China

China Concerned Over Content Published by Website


Apple has removed the Quartz app from its store in China following concerns about the content published by the website.

According to a statement by business website Quartz, the application was being pulled down “because it includes content that is illegal in China.”

The website has been aggressively covering the NBA controversy in China and the ongoing protests in Hong Kong

The application has a virtual private network-enabled website that allowed Chinese users to beat the government censorship of the internet.

Commenting on the action, Quartz’s CEO Zach Seward said the company “abhor this kind of government censorship of the internet.”

The move comes days after Apple pulled down, a real-time tracking app that allowed Hong Kong protestors to track police movements. Apple said the app endangers the police and Hong Kong residents.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
