As per Apple’s China love affair, the latest happening between the iPhone maker and the country is that Chinese authorities has ordered Apple to remove pornography from its China app store. China’s National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications named Apple among 198 offenders, reports state-owned news agency Xinhua news. The move of closing down site displaying porn so far results in knocking out a total of 21 web sites and ordered 175 offenders to delete content.

Interestingly, the notification comes just over less than a month after when Apple’s CEO Time Cook posted an apology note for consumers in China with clearly stating that the new warranty policies for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S will come into picture soon. Cook at that time said that the company received number of feedback about Apple in China over repair and warranty policy and because of lack of external communication in this process, the whole scenario leads to the speculation that Apple do not care or do not attach importance to consumer feedback.
