Over the last few days, Apple has seemingly started cracking down on applications that share location data with third-parties. In such cases, Apple has been removing the application in question and informing developers that their app violates two parts of the App Store Review Guidelines.

Good.

GDPR has been EU law for nearly a year now, with the caveat that it was not to be enforced until the 25th this year. There is no excuse. Chances are their actions were already illegal under existing privacy law as well, so again no excuses for the developers. There is no reason they should have been provided with any warning.
