Apple Censors E-Mails in Their Clients' iCloud...

...Without Informing Them About it

Apple's more recent censorship actions involved comics, ironic fake shooters and obscene apples. And of course the incident a few weeks ago when they suggested that games should stay child-friendly. If you want to talk about sex or religion, write a book about it.

But now, the censorship applied by the Apple company has found its way into the private messages of the customers. The reason is that Apple reserves the right to delete any iCloud content at any time without even informing the client about it. That way, no explanation has to be given.

TOS Apple: You acknowledge that Apple is not responsible or liable in any way for any Content provided by others and has no duty to pre-screen such Content. However, Apple reserves the right at all times to determine whether Content is appropriate and in compliance with this Agreement, and may pre-screen, move, refuse, modify and/or remove Content at any time, without prior notice and in its sole discretion, if such Content is found to be in violation of this Agreement or is otherwise objectionable.

A filmmaker sent a script with his Apple e-mail account and this script included the phrase "barely legal teens" in a dialogue. Granted, this is a common keyword for porn spam. But not always. And since Apple checks every mail before it is delivered, it went missing on its way to the receiver. Other customers also checked the transmission of such mails, especially in cases where the sender and receiver were both placed on a whitelist (so their mails should never end up in the spam folder). And here, the mails weren't delivered, either, and information about the deletion was missing, as well.

Apple talks about automated filters that kill those mails but did not address why whitelists are ignored and why such mails do not even surface in the spam folder. They just let them disappear.
