Apple Issuing Refunds to All Those Who Downloaded Peace Ad-Blocker

You all must be aware of the huge controversy that surrounded the popular ad-blocking app, Peace, earlier this week. This paid app allowed users to block ads. However, its creator Marco Arment had a change of heart after which he pulled the application from the Apple App Store after he received criticism related to the ethics of ad blocking. Arment later issued a statement to the people to ask Apple for a refund since he had no authority to issue it as a result of which thousands of people have asked for refunds now out of which more than 13,000 have even got the refunds.

When Arment learnt that Apple is giving the refunds for the app, he actually felt happy for having this matter resolved efficiently. He also added that the popularity of the app and making all that money from it was nothing less than a roller coaster ride for him which ended soon. As for now, it is still unclear as how many people have downloaded this app in total and how many out of them are actually eligible for the refund. This is rare occasion for Apple as well since there aren’t many instances when the company had to issue refunds for an app. Apple, however, did it earlier for some magazine’s subscription where they refunded the customers for those issues for which they had paid but could not access.
This app, Peace, was amongst the new horde of apps which heavily rely on Apple’s iOS 9 content block feature which lets users blacklist certain domains so as to improve their page load times and their iPhone’s battery life.
