Apple has removed adp computer service from its iOS and macOS App Store, citing an “unacceptable” use of the service.
Apple says “no adp services are being offered” for “any reason” and “no other adp systems will be available for the foreseeable future,” and that it “does not want to compromise the security of our users.”
It added that the adp system will continue to be available through “other means.”
“The service is not available in the Apple App Store and cannot be used by Apple,” it said.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to you.”
Apple has also removed service pro computer, a service that lets Apple Mac users download apps directly from the App Store.
Apple removed the service from the Apple Mac App Store earlier this year.
The move comes after Apple released new security updates for iOS and OS X in October, which came just days after the FBI reportedly discovered a new version of Adpbot on a victim’s Mac.
Adpbots, which are automated software programs that install malicious apps on your Macs or iPhones, were being used to infect users’ computers with malicious software that was targeting Apple devices.
