Apple Is Removing Scam Apps That Trick People Into Making Purchases

Apple's App Store has been infiltrated by scammers.

According to Business Insider, Apple has a team of reviewers that inspect every submission and update for over 2 million iPhone and iPad apps.

Nevertheless, two scam apps over the weekend were found to have tricked users into making purchases they didn't intend to make.

One app told users that it would read your heart rate through your fingerprint by touching the Touch ID scanner, which is how you approve an in-app purchase.
