Apple to launch an ‘explicit’ category for rude apps?

Cult of Mac has just been informed by a developer that a new section has appeared in iTunes Connect. When a developer submits an app they need to select a category and it looks like Apple may be getting ready to launch an ‘explicit’ category. This potentially means that all the rude apps which were recently removed, could be put back into the app store in a different section. An explicit section hasn’t appeared in the front end yet so it might not amount to anything but it’s very interesting. We asked a developer friend to double check that the new section existed and it does, as you can see from the screen-shot below.

Update: According to Gizmodo, the developer who spotted the new ‘explicit’ category says it has been removed.
