Apple has made it simpler to report malicious applications and frauds.

NEWS

After a lot of reports indicating that some of the top App Store apps were scams, Apple has given their users a chance to fight back and report these scams if they come across them, this is coming as part of the IOS 15 update which  “report a scam or fraud” for both free, in-app purchases and paid apps.

The feature goes even further than the previous “Report a Problem” feature, as you can now report a scam or a fraud and not just “report suspicious activity” as it used to be. Before, you would have had to make an in-app purchase before you could bring to light a potential scam or fraud, but that has now changed.

So it appears that Apple has decided to take a strong stand against fraud and scams.
