Apple revoked Google’s ability to offer its employees internal-only iPhone apps, likely causing significant disruption to the search giant, the BBC reports.
Apple was punishing its rival for breaking its developers' policy, a day after it took the same action against Facebook.
The move came after both firms used special access for market research.
Apple restored Google's access to the software by the end of the working day on Thursday.
After more than 24 hours of disruption, Facebook had its access restored earlier on Thursday.
Apple allows companies the ability to exert special control over employee devices in order to add additional security and control.
Many firms use this to distribute apps that might contain private information to employees but not the wider public.
