A new adult option for iPhone apps disappeared almost immediately

Confusion over Apple’s ‘explicit’ apps category

The controversy around Apple’s policies regarding sexual content in iPhone apps got a new twist yesterday, when it seemed as if the company was about to allow adult apps again.

Cult Of Mac reported that a new category had suddenly appeared in the iTunes Connect service used by developers to submit their apps to Apple – ‘Explicit’.

However, no sooner had it appeared and been reported on, then the category disappeared.

Tech blog Gizmodo talked to an iPhone app developer who claimed to have asked Apple about the mystery category, and been told that "it’s not going to happen anytime soon".
