Apple Finally Bans Cryptocurrency Mining On The iPhone & iPad
The applications or apps used by the mobile devices and smartphones simply to mine cryptocurrencies, with or without the users’ permission, have become a worrying problem for the companies responsible for the most popular operating systems on the market.
That is why the well-known and reputed US company, of course, the tech giant Apple has changed the guidelines that regulate the applications that developers offer through the App Store or virtual store, reflecting their position on this type of activities.
The new rules indicate that developers can not introduce any mining tool into the iOS and macOS ecosystem applications, specifically in the section on energy efficiency and a separate crypto-currency section.
The first section suggests that applications “may not execute unrelated background processes, such as cryptocurrency mining,” although Wallet applications for encryption are allowed as long as the developer is registered as an organization.
Any application that provides the Initial Currency Offer (ICO), future transactions or other securities must be provided by established banks, security firms and futures commission merchants (FCM).
In addition, any of the cryptocurrency applications which are available in App Store simply can not offer foreign currency as a reward for downloading other apps, publishing them on social networks or encouraging other users to download apps.
