Google employees have probably discovered that their daily work was broken by Apple's move

Apple has abolished Google's ability to offer its employees an internal iPhone application, likely causing significant search potentials.

Apple punishes its rival for breaching the rules of development engineers and comes the day after it has taken the same action against Facebook.

This move came after both companies used a special approach to market research.

"We're working with Apple to fix a temporary shutdown of some of our corporate iOS apps," Google said.

After more than 24 hours of interruption, Facebook had access on Thursday.

"We are in the process of getting our internal applications and launches," the BBC spokeswoman said. "To be clear, it did not affect our consumer-oriented services."

Apple allows businesses to take special control over employee devices to add extra security and control.

Many companies use it to distribute applications that can contain private information to employees, but not to the general public.


Some companies also distribute test or beta versions of the applications they are running, such as Google, Maps, Hangouts, and Gmail.

Both companies use internal iOS applications to help employees access services such as travel.

However, Apple explicitly prohibits companies from using this approach to regular consumers.

On Monday, it was discovered that Facebook used its access to a publicly-market research app distribution company, including teenagers.

On Tuesday it became known that Google is doing something similar to its application, Screenwise.

It seems that Apple stood firm in its view that "any programmer who uses their enterprise distribution certificates to deploy consumer applications will cancel their certificates".

Although Google has its own operating system, Android, a large number of nearly 100,000 employees use the iPhone for its work, and the company announces most of its software on Android and Apple's iOS.

It's a big escalation between Apple and its major rivals for protecting the user data.
