This is Apple at its absolute worst. Exploiting its monopoly control over the App Store to self-deal their own wares to the very top, at the expense of third-party makers. May the antitrust busters strike at this with furious might.  https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/09/09/technology/apple-app-store-competition.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share 

And not only is the acts deplorable, listen to Schiller and Cue flaunt their utter contempt at the implication that they might be in the wrong. Cringe-maddening.

Apple is institutionally well-positioned to be a leader on privacy for a mass market platform, but don't for a second believe that means they're a universally benevolent entity. Their immense power demands immense accountability and scrutiny.
