Apple has been questioned as of late as to whether or not they have the power to disable iPhone apps remotely.

It appears that they do, as it has been confirmed by Steve Jobs that Apple can disable an application on the iPhone thanks to a feature installed in the iPhone’s Mac OS.

Apple has the power to basically watch everything that goes on with their iPhone devices from their servers.

If needed, they can put it to use by removing what they deem as against their policy.

Appls currently removed by the company and on the blacklist include Netshare, I Am Rich, PhoneSaber, and others.
