Yahoo Finance app disappears from China’s App Store after the outlet covered Apple censorship in China

A day after Yahoo Finance published a report about the challenges Apple’s business is likely to start facing in China, the giant removed the media outlet’s app from the Chinese App Store, the Apple Censorship site found.

The site, which monitors what it calls Apple’s active and non-transparent censorship of App Stores all around the world, said the first time they detected that the Yahoo Finance app was missing was on October 14, one day after the article was published.

Apple Censorship was not convinced the timing was a coincidence, and neither were other accounts commenting about this development on Twitter, with some accusing the US tech behemoth of abusing its monopolistic status to censor the press.
