Some negative press has come out though against Apple, as it has been revealed that they have the power to kill any iPhone app they please remotely.

An independent iPhone developer by the name of Jonathan Zdziarski has found a kill switch in the Apple iPhone 2.0 OS.

It is believed that this allows Apple to disable any iPhone app on your iPhone remotely.

This comes as apps have began to disappear from the App Store, including BoxOffice, NetShare, and I Am Rich.

The latest victim was the lightsaber app, PhoneSaber.

Apple has not actually used the kill switch as of yet to get rid of any iPhone app remotely, so the moment has not yet come to go after the company for this.

This discovery though has raised the eyebrows of many iPhone owners, as it shows that Apple has control over your device at all times, even remotely.
