Microsoft is sending emails to Windows Store publishers that don't have age ratings for their apps. Microsoft says those apps will be removed from the Windows Store after Sept. 30 unless they get updated with approved age ratings.
Microsoft started rolling out the new age rating system for Windows Store apps in January 2016, based on the International Age Rating Coalition's (IARC) system. Ratings are also available for each market, like North America, Europe, Germany, Australia and Brazil. Microsoft previously warned that apps with no ratings would be removed from the store earlier this summer.
Now Neowin is reporting that Microsoft has sent a final warning to those app developers, along with a firm date for the app's removal if it does not have an age rating.
It's very possible this move will result in many apps getting the axe that have been posted for some time, but have not been updated by their creators.
