Apple users looking for a new ebook reader app will have to wait a bit longer.
Apple’s latest ebook reader software update, which went live on Monday, has now been pulled, bringing an end to the Tor eBook Club.
The Tor eBookClub was the first of many open-source ebook readers, and it’s been used by thousands of people to download books, and manage their reading habits.
Apple has been the first company to remove the Tor ereader from the App Store, and Apple’s announcement says it’s “reviewing” the software and “taking steps to prevent this from happening again.”
While Apple has pulled the Tor book reader app from the iOS app store, other apps like iBooks, which is available for free download on the App store, are still available.
Tor’s support team told Ars that “there are a number of other apps that are still accessible.”
The removal of the Tor app is likely a reflection of the fact that Apple has not been as transparent about the change in the Tor ecosystem as it has with other ebook apps.
Apple released a statement on the changes on Monday evening saying “the Tor network continues to evolve,” but it failed to mention any specific changes to the app.
Apple also did not mention the Tor community when it released its support statement, saying it “continues to listen and work with the community to improve the app experience.”
Tor has seen an increasing number of attacks on the network in recent weeks, and the company has been forced to suspend its operations and halt distribution of Tor software.
That has led to the closure of the network and the loss of a large number of services.
