Yep, Apple has actually approved an app with nudity in it for the first time this week called “Hottest Girls”. It’s an incredibly rudimentary app which simply downloads pictures of hot, topless girls from a server to your iPhone. There was some confusion this morning regarding the approval status of the app since it disappeared from the app store today after having been approved just a few days ago.

This is the first approved application for the iPhone or iTouch which actually contains nudity, signalling that Apple may be getting more lax with their actual approval process.
