Apple has removed the Amazon.com app for iPhone and iPad from its online store after customers complained it was inappropriate and made users feel uncomfortable.
The move comes just weeks after Amazon announced it was dropping its own “iPhone” app in favour of an iPhone app.
The announcement sparked outcry among users who said the app made users think they were buying an iPhone instead of an Apple product.
“The app is no longer a viable option for the majority of users,” Amazon said in a statement to Al Jazeera.
“As a result, we have taken the necessary action to remove the app from the Apple App Store.”
Users can now find the app on Amazon’s website.
Apple has long said it supports Apple products and the app’s removal comes as it tries to get users to switch to a more modern product.
Last month, Apple said it would stop making and selling Apple products, including iPhones, iPads and iPods, in a move that will save customers around $10 billion in the coming year.
Apple said the move would also result in the “tremendous cost savings” that it said will be “hugely beneficial to our customers”.
The company also said it had begun to remove products from its store, including its Apple TV and Mac computers.
