Apple removed all apps associated with electronic cigarettes from the App Store



Following the introduction of e-cigarette-related health problems and deaths, Apple removed all apps associated with electronic cigarettes from the AppStore. In a statement, the company said it was prompted by warnings from health care providers such as the CDC and the American Heart Association.

Health experts say the spread of electronic cigarettes and electronic cigarettes has created a public health crisis and has become an epidemic among genes. In a press release, Apple said:

In fact, the company stopped publishing new apps associated with electronic cigarettes in June.  In addition, apple’s platform never allows the sale of e-cigarette cartridges and e-cigarette filters.



With this new decision, a total of 181 apps have been removed from the App Store. Removed apps include games, as well as side apps that allow you to control the lighting and heating of e-cigarette devices.

It is reasonable for Apple to make that decision after about 42 people died from a mysterious lung injury associated with e-cigarettes. Because you are increasingly concerned about e-cigarette products in the community. The exact cause of lung damage is not yet known, but the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week that a chemical thickener added to e-cigarette products may have an effect on the issue.
