Adblock, Apple, and EA news

Adblock, Apple, and EA news

This week on the Softonic Roundup we checkout what’s going on between YouTube and Adblock, get excited about Apple’s announcements, and ponder why EA is taking games off the App Store.

Ad-blockers were in the news quite a lot last week. We start looking at recent clashes between the Chrome YouTube App and AdBlock Pro (Source: Neowin), but then have a closer look at a recent report regarding the impact of ad-blockers on  websites. (Sources: BuzzFeed, Ad Age, and PageFair)

Obviously, last week’s Apple Keynote is also a focus of this week’s Roundup. Information on the WatchOS2, iPad Pro, and the new iPhone 6S (and iPhone 6S Plus) all got us excited. That said it was the new Apple TV announcement that got our minds racing, pondering how the tech company intends to change how we behave in our living room. (Source: Apple)

Finally, game news from EA. The gaming giant has removed a number of its games from the App Store (including Flight Control, Real Racing, and Dead Space). There is still no words as to why, but we are guessing it is will be due to either compatibility issues with iOS 9 or a move to re-release them in a free to play format as they did with Peggle.
