The letter referred to the videos as “misleading and false election information,” according to Detroit Free Press.

The videos can no longer be found on the Big League Politics site but can be found on Twitter, BitChute, and other platforms.

Membership site Patreon on Thursday shared an update to its policies, saying it would no longer support creator accounts that “advance disinformation promoting the QAnon conspiracy theory.” QAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory that falsely alleges there’s a “deep state” plot against US President Donald Trump.

Patreon says a small number of creators on its platform have supported QAnon through their work. 

“Because of this, and the fact that we have seen a number of other online platforms become overrun with pages and groups actively focused around QAnon disinformation, we are taking action,” the company said in a blog post. “From now on, QAnon-dedicated creators that are identified by our Policy and Trust & Safety teams will have

Zachary Knox, creator of the Stadium app that allowed users to play Stadia games on their iPhones, said the Cupertino tech giant reached out to him and informed him that it is taking down the app.

For those who don’t know, the Stadium app offers iPhone users a workaround so they can enjoy Stadia games directly on their

Apple will remove app that made it easy to play Stadia on iOS

An app that offered a simple way to get Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service running on iOS is being removed from the App Store, its developer says. Stadium creator Zachary Knox announced the news in the app’s Discord server. “I have some bad news,” Knox wrote, “But before I get to that: if you want to use the App Store release of Stadium, download it now.”

While cloud gaming services like Stadia, xCloud, and GeForce Now are not officially available on iOS because of Apple’s rules, Stadium offered a workaround by streaming Stadia’s games through a web browser. This is theoretically allowed, since Apple’s policies specifically say developers can use “the open Internet and web browser apps” to reach users outside of the App Store. However, it appears Apple isn’t happy with the specifics of Stadium’s implementation.

Apple to reportedly remove app that enabled Google Stadia on iPhone

Apple is removing an app that allowed iPhone users to play Google Stadia streaming games in a specially designed web browser, according to the software’s developer.

Zachary Knox in September launched Stadium, an iOS web browser that effectively bypasses App Store restrictions on cloud-based gaming services to provide support for Stadia on iPhone. He was able to create the workaround, complete with controller integration, with a bit of clever WebKit engineering.

On Monday, Knox said Stadium is being pulled from the App Store because Apple “didn’t like” the results.

“I was extending WebKit’ by hooking it into the native GameController framework and thus Bluetooth controllers, which they didn’t like,” Knox said in a tweet.

The app was downloaded nearly 15,000 times over the past three weeks.

Stadium is still available on the App Store as of this writing. After downloading the app, users can set the
