Parler could go back to the App Store according to Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, but he must first comply with the Terms of Service. Parler was removed from the App Store on Sunday when he refused to remove specific content and update his moderation guidelines. Parler did not comply with requests and that led to Apple removing the application. Apple CEO Tim Cook said Parler could return to the App Store in a television interview. The app only needs to comply with Apple’s Terms of Service to be reinstated, although it is somewhat more complicated. “Parler has some trouble with moderation,” Cook said. “Our hope is that they do and go back to the store.” “We suspend it, we do not ban it,” Cook added. “We have terms of service for our app store, and you are violating some of those terms of service. All we ask is that you comply with the terms of service.” Apple had previously given Parler 24 hours to make changes to the app to improve moderation and remove content that promoted violence and hatred. The app did nothing and was killed as a result. Google also took action and removed the app from the Google Play store before Apple. Amazon cut its AWS cloud services on Sunday, putting it out of service. Even if Parler complies with Apple’s guidelines, it must convince Amazon or another company to host its platform before it can start up again, so it’s unclear when or if the service will return.
