Apple will require app developers who offer an option to create accounts within their apps to also provide a means to delete them. This is starting with app submissions beginning on January 31, 2022. This account deletion requirement was announced along with several other changes to Apple's developer guidelines at WWDC 2021.
Although account deletion is only a minor convenience, considering how many apps require accounts and how easy it can be to delete an application without ending your relationship to the company that it is connected to, it's welcome. Apple's announcement only suggests that developers will allow users to delete their account directly from the app. This could mean that you might be able to access the account deletion feature via a browser at some point in the process.
You can get rid of third-party accounts
Apple also confirmed the addition of its most prominent app reporting tool, which was first spotted on iOS just a few days back. Apple has confirmed that the Report a Problem button will be available on iOS 15, iPadOS 15 and macOS Monterey when it is released. This button lets users report suspicious, abusive or illegal content, even if they have not purchased the app.
Apples also made some recent changes to the App Store, such as allowing company apps to be reviewed. However, for a complete look at all the changes Apples has made to its storefront over the years, see our article.
