The Narwhal app is now back at the App Retailer after the removing of NSFW settings.

In a similar fashion, the developer of Eggplant Reddit used to be requested to take away the NSFW toggle provide inside the consumer:

It isn't suitable to show pornographic content. It might be suitable to take away the toggle and pornography provide inside the app.

Reddit additionally won a realize to do the similar on its official apps:

We have been requested to update our apps (AB and Reddit Authentic) to take away the "Protected for Paintings Surfing" toggle. This can be a function we in the past subtle with Apple's lend a hand. We have been stunned via the awareness.

We simply resubmitted our construct. We weren't knowledgeable that Apple can be eliminating different apps. We have been very disenchanted to peer that they did. Truthfully, if we have been focused on eliminating third celebration apps (which we are not!!!), this will be the stupidest imaginable approach to accomplish it.

We propose all third celebration apps in a similar fashion take away settings for protected for paintings surfing.
