Apple Inc. plans to make the social-media app Parler available through its App Store again, the computer and smartphone company said in a letter to lawmakers on Monday.

Apple has excluded Parler user downloads since January, citing objectionable content. In a letter to Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Congressman Ken Buck of Colorado, Apple said Monday that a revised version of the Parler app with improved content moderation would be approved for release to Apple users.

The letter from Apple was posted on Twitter by Mr. Buck, and it was confirmed by Mr. Lee's office. Apple declined to comment.
