A day after a media report claimed that Apple in 2015 threatened to kick Uber out of App Store for flouting the rules, the ride-hailing company replied on Monday, saying that it does not track users if they have deleted the app from their iPhones.

A New York Times report said on Sunday that Apple CEO Tim Cook convened a meeting with Uber CEO Travis Kalanick in 2015 when he found Uber was directing his employees to help camouflage the ride-hailing app from Apple’s engineers.

Cook reportedly warned Kalanick,” So, I’ve heard you’ve been breaking some of our rules. Stop the trickery or Uber’s app would be kicked out of Apple’s App Store.”
