APPLE PULLS OVER 250 APPS FOR SECURITY CONCERNS
Apple IOS has reportedly removed nearly 300 apps from the iTunes store because they secretly gathered personal information from users. Some of the information included email addresses and other personal information.
Most of the apps were allegedly made in China and allowed a Chinese ad company to display their ads inside the apps. The software was designed to gather people's email addresses and iPhone serial numbers.
Apple says it will no longer accept apps from the developer. Most of the apps are games, including the popular Angry Birds 2.
There is not a software update if you have any of the apps on your Apple device, just make sure to update your iTunes store as scheduled.
