Amazon Prime Video App Disappears from Apple App Store and Apple TV

It seems the streaming wars have already started sizzling. Earlier today, reports came out saying Disney has banned ads from their streaming rival, Netflix and now, another report is saying the Amazon Prime Video App has now disappeared from the App Store on both iPhone and Apple TV. While the reason is still not known, we can’t help wonder if the cause is due to another behind-the-scenes dispute between the two companies. We have reached out to Amazon, but they have yet to comment on the matter.

Though the app is not showing up in searches, users who have previously installed Prime Video on their Apple devices said they were still able to use it and it can be found in purchases, Apple Insider reports. Existing app installations work on iOS 13.1.2, the iOS 13.2 beta, and the tvOS 13 release version.

It is possible that it is the result of a technical issue, rather than a business one. Amazon recently issued an app update for X-ray view in some sporting events, so it is possible there is a glitch with the update that’s causing it to malfunction and withdrawal from the app temporarily.
