Apple Classifies Opera Mini As Porn App on iPhone
By on May 20th, 2010

Not sure how to take this, but Apple just marked Mini as an age-restricted over 17 material on the . As you can see from the screenshot below, the latest update to Opera Mini was flagged as restricted while i was upgrading the browser to the latest version.

iPhone Opera Mini Porn

Now I am not really sure what Opera has that is age-restricted, but it definitely made me smile thinking of all the possibilities on why this could have happened.

Are you seeing the same message while upgrading Opera Mini to the latest version on your iPhone or iPod Touch?

    Just one word.

    WTF!

    If you are a parent, giving your child an iPod/iPhone, you can restrict access to Safari so that your child cannot view porn. This is in the current OS under Settings -> General -> Restrictions.

    You cannot restrict access to 3rd party apps. So…if you were a parent and downloaded Opera mini to your child's iPod, they could use Opera to access porn, and there would be nothing you could to do stop it unless you uninstalled the app. Hence, the warning.

    Take your damn tinfoil hats off broz!

      That is one of the most absurd what if's I have ever even heard. Good Day, random internet person.

    Many apps that have wide access to Internet content are rated this way. The one that jumps to mind is Wikipanion, ’cause I get the warning every time it is updated.

    Apple classifies any application that pulls data from the web as being age restricted, even Twitter clients and weather widgets. This dialog is the iphone equivelent of the ESRB warning on video games telling you that the "Game Experience May Change During Online Play" because they can't control what people say or type.

    You can open adult sites on it which would would be blocked in your desktop web browser

    Thats why!
