Apple has removed around 5,000 apps from its App Store, including some that it claims feature “overtly sexual” content.

Dozens of developers received a message from Apple stating that the company was refining the guidelines under which the App Store operates, and that content that it had “originally believed to be suitable for distribution” were now no longer deemed appropriate, following “numerous complaints from customers about this type of content”.

Jon Atherton, the creator of Wobble iBoobs, said he had received a letter saying his app was being removed from the store. The letter, from Apple’s iPhone App Review team, said that if Atherton made changes to the app so that it complied with the recent changes to Apple’s terms and conditions, he could resubmit iBoobs for review.
