Apple removes more than 26,000 games from China app store

Removals in response to crackdown on unlicensed games by Beijing

Apple pulled 29,800 apps from its China app store on Saturday, including more than 26,000 games, according to Qimai Research Institute.

The removals are in response to Beijing’s crackdown on unlicensed games, which started in June and intensified in July, Bloomberg reported. This brings an end to the unofficial practice of letting games be published while awaiting approval from Chinese censors.
