Apple and China seem to have complicated relationships. Soon after Apple had to apologize to the country for selling the Chinese short on their warranties, it turned out that the company has had to remove books banned by the Chinese government from its iTunes store.
According to media reports, there were 10 works on iTunes that were deemed controversial by the local government. 3 of them were by Chinese writer Wang Lixiong, and Hao Peiqiang, one of the app developers, revealed the truth. Actually, Wang’s books are banned in most parts of China for his political activism: one them was about the country’s future role in Tibet, the second one talked about being detained for political activism and the last one outlined the collapse of the country’s government. Dissident was talking about Tibet facing suppression from the country’s ruling CCP.
Although the books are still available in other territories, Apple hasn’t provided any comments now. A few days ago, the company’s CEO Tim Cook admitted that Apple still had much to learn about operating and communicating in China.
