Parler Returns on iOS

Issue 67

Apple plans to make the social-media app Parler available through its App Store again, the computer and smartphone company said in a letter to lawmakers on Monday.

The company previously removed Parler from its App marketplace in January, citing objectionable content. In a letter to Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Representative Ken Buck of Colorado, Apple said that a revised version of the Parler with improved content moderation would be approved for release to Apple users.

“The App Review Team has informed Parler as of April 14, 2021, that its proposed updated app will be approved for reinstatement to the App Store,” the letter said. The letter came in response to an inquiry that Lee and Buck sent to Apple last month.

Mr. Buck said on Twitter that the decision was a “huge win for free speech.”
