China's great firewall has claimed another censorship victim. According to reports from the New York Times, Apple's (AAPL) recently released news app has been disabled in China, meaning no media content from the app can be accessed in the region. Those attempting to use the news curating app on the Chinese mainland are faced with an error message reading, 'Can't refresh right now. News isn't supported in your current region.' Even articles previously saved within the app are no longer accessible to users once they have entered China. Apple has so far declined to comment on the block but is clearly treading carefully as China is now the company's largest market outside of the United States, raking in sales of $13 billion last quarter. Apple News joins a host of other U.S. websites that have been blocked by China's extensive censorship network.
