Apple punishes Google by revoking its ability to test apps

Apple breaks Google’s internal iOS apps for the same reason it broke Facebook’s apps Apple declares war on enterprise customers

Having apparently proved its point, Apple has restored its access to enterprise certificates for both Facebook and Google, essentially un-breaking their internal apps.

Revoking Google's enterprise certificate comes one day after Apple did the same to Facebook.

"We're working with Apple to fix a temporary disruption to some of our corporate iOS apps, which we expect will be resolved soon", Google said in the statement.

That apology wasn't enough for Don Cook though, and Google briefly found its certificate withdrawn. which was a problem as it meant employee-only test versions of YouTube, Gmail and Calendar stopped working. Which, of course, caused a bit of mayhem, which is most likely exactly what Apple wanted - after all, the company is well-known for taking security seriously.

Both tech giants have now had their certificates restored, allowing access to their internal iOS apps.

Facebook says Apple is restoring a key development tool that the iPhone maker disabled Wednesday. Whether Apple was punishing Facebook and Google as a deterrent to other companies that have or might have distributed apps externally using enterprise certificates, or it will go after all offenders, remains to be seen. Therefore, anyone who wants to use a jailbroken iPhone or iPad is still on iOS 11, which would explain why this discussion thread on the jailbreak subreddit has picked up so much steam.

The rule above would be caught in a paradox in cases where the "core functionality" of an app is to gather detailed user data and is explicit with it. The app tracked the mobile phone usage habits of those partaking in Facebook's program. This app is completely voluntary and always has been.

Facebook employees couldn't access even their calendars or company transit schedules, according to a report by The New York Times. And Apple has made clear, enterprise distribution has limits.

"There was nothing "secret" about this; it was literally called the Facebook Research App", Arielle Argyres, a Facebook spokeswoman, said in a statement. The developer program internally distributes the app within their organization.

Facebook threatened Research app users with legal action for publicly discussing the VPN, I've learned, yet it claims there was "nothing secret about it". The search engine also recruited participants on its own, clearly as a Google program. The social-networking company also monitored teens, paying them $20 a month if they signed up with parental consent. It basically boils down to "we shouldn't have done this thing we've been doing for years".
