Additionally, apps relating to Rebiya Kadeer who is an exiled leader that’s despised by Chinese authorities are inaccessible from the Chinese App Store. Apple’s spokeswoman, Trudy Muller, has commented that “We continue to comply with local laws. Not all apps are available in every country.”
The Dalai Lama is going to have somewhat of a difficult time getting across people now that Apple has blocked access to certain Dalai Lama apps in China. Apple isn’t doing this on their own behalf; instead they are following protocol according to China’s laws – resulting in mostly Dalai Lama quote apps being blocked from the Chinese App Store. Some of them include Dalai Quotes, Dalai Lama Quotes, Dalai Lama Prayerwheel, and Paging Dalai Lama.
