Why Has Apple Blocked The BlueMail Update?


Because of concerns that it might produce offensive content for children, Apple Inc. has postponed approving an update to an email app with AI-powered tools. According to communications between the iPhone manufacturer and the app developer, Ben Volach, co-founder of BlueMail developer Blix Inc., reported by the Wall Street Journal.

BlueMail was urged to change the app’s age classification for those over 17 or apply content filtering after Apple rejected the app update last week because BlueMail might produce inappropriate content for all audiences.

In a tweet, Volach claimed that BlueMail had content screening and that BlueMail is being unfairly singled out by Apple. A stricter age restriction could prevent the app from being distributed to prospective new users. Also, other apps with similar updates and features were available on App Store that were not blocked.
