Apple forged a worldwide brand for itself as a think-outside-the-box kind of company, but these days it can be found firmly inside the box Communist China has created for it:
Apple has taken down a Quran app and a Bible app in China at the request of Chinese officials, the company confirmed to the BBC.
The apps, which are called Quran Majeed and Bible App by Olive Tree, were first reported as having been taken down by activist website Apple Censorship on Tuesday.
Apple directed the BBC to its Human Rights policy, which says: "We're required to comply with local laws, and at times there are complex issues about which we may disagree with governments and other stakeholders on the right path forward. "
Apple told the BBC that Chinese officials had said the apps breached laws on hosting illegal religious texts.
It's hard to believe that a company that put itself on the map with an ad campaign aimed specifically at anti-tyranny...
...is now taking orders directly from the Chinese Communist Party.
But that's just the way it is, folks!
