It hasn't been removed. APSL, even 1.1, gives Apple the power to revoke any
and all APSL licenses if someone even makes a patent infringement claim. They
don't even have to prove actual patent infringement, Apple can just go
"seeya!" and you no longer have any right to use their code, or even your code
that includes some of theirs.

It's just a bad license. It's not even Open Source, much less Free Software.
