Apple Bans iFixit App Over Apple TV Teardown

I wouldn't worry too much about this situation. Apple will do what they always do when they come under fire, they will put the app back and claim it was all a big misunderstanding. roll eyes (sarcastic)

The developer unit we disassembled was sent to us by Apple. Evidently, they didn’t intend for us to take it apart. But we’re a teardown and repair company; teardowns are in our DNAآ—and nothing makes us happier than figuring out what makes these gadgets tick. We weighed the risks, blithely tossed those risks over our shoulder, and tore down the Apple TV anyway. A few days later, we got an email from Apple informing us that we violated their terms and conditionsآ—and the offending developer account had been banned.
