Apple Forces Developers to Remove Code That Allowed Them to Record Users’ Screens

The Infinite Brief
Yesterday, TechCrunch discovered that multiple popular iPhone apps from major companies are using intrusive analytics services that capture data ranging from taps and swipes to full screen recordings, all without customers knowing about it. 

Today, Apple has informed app developers that this kind of screen recording analytics code needs to be clearly disclosed to customers or removed from iOS apps.

Apple gave at least one developer less than a day to remove it and resubmit the app before it would be pulled from the App Store.
