Apple: Don't Mine Cryptocurrencies on an iPhone

The Good and Bad of iOS 12 Alison McGuire

But the company later pulled the app, reportedly because the software's mining function could drain a Mac's battery life and cause excessive heat.

During its recent Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple quietly slipped some language into the App Store review guidelines that prevent anyone from using iPhones and iPads to mine cryptocurrency.

The updated guidelines, posted last week, are found in the Hardware Compatibility and Cryptocurrencies sections of the document.

Note: Apps for trading cryptocurrencies and tracking prices will not be affected by the changes.

She continued. "In Assassin's Creed Odyssey , we're telling a story of a family that has been torn apart and a family tragedy". In the gameplay footage, the player chooses to start the game as the female protagonist and sets out on a series of quests.

Apple has banned developers from submitting cryptocurrency mining apps designed for the iPhone or iPad.

Six months after crypto exchange Coinbase's app became the number one trending app on the App Store, Apple has now apps to provide wallet services under a caveat.

Wallets coded by developers enrolled as an organisation are also allowed, as are apps that facilitate transactions or transmissions of cryptocurrencies, provided these are offered by the exchanges in question.

Apps, including any third party advertisements displayed within them, may not run on unrelated background processes, such as cryptocurrency mining.

Addressing the rising frauds with the unregulated initial coin offering-based (ICO) fundraising technique, Apple is now only allowing apps from established banks, securities firms, futures commission merchants ("FCM"), or other approved financial institutions.

Moreover, Apple will no longer allow reward-based crypto marketing with App Store listed apps. In a dedicated cryptocurrency section, the company goes on to break down in more detail what is - and, crucially, is not - permissible.

And apps may not offer cryptocurrency as an incentive for taking specific actions, such as downloading other apps, posting to social media or urging others to download apps.
