Apple became aware of a supposed Sudoku app in its own app store, but it had absolutely nothing to do with the popular logic puzzle. After the start, the app revealed itself to be a platform for thousands of films and series that users could watch illegally and free of charge.

The content included numerous offers from well-known streaming providers, including shows from Apple TV +. The makers of this app have probably found a way to take control of the Apple to bypass. When you start Zoshy + for the first time, you actually see a Sudoku interface for a short time. After a few seconds, however, this disappears and the actual content of the app is revealed. The developers probably only submitted the Sudoku variant for review by Apple – and after approval made a change to the server possible to access the illegal platform.

Zoshy + is said to have been in the App Store for almost three weeks and stayed in the area of ​​the 50 most popular puzzle games. The app has now been removed. The creators probably financed their platform through advertising income. According to Apple, there are already measures that the company draws attention to such actions. Obviously, there are still some loopholes at Apple. The app is said to have generated further downloads via a TikTok video that Zoshy + introduces. The clip has already been viewed over 2.6 million times.
