A source said the gathering and analysis of user activity by Onavo Protect app is beyond the violations of the newly introduced data collection limits. It as well found guilty of breaking a clause on the agreement—according to which the app cannot be used—the gathered data for advertising and another irrelevant purpose.
However, Apple didn’t make it clear that whether send a direct warning, but they said we made it explicitly clear that applications are not allowed to gather data about the list of installed apps, just for the sake of marketing and analytics.
The company as well put some emphasis on the fact that the application must have a clear outline of the data they are asking from the user and how they are going to use it.

If considered this, it was just about the moment when Apple is going to confront the Facebook about it data collection model.
