  • WWDC 2018 New Product and Feature Announcements by Apple

Apple Books will be "entirely redesigned to make discovering and enjoying books and audiobooks effortless for iPhone and iPad users", explains Apple, and will debut when iOS 12 arrives this fall. The company announced a new update to its developer guideline where it said apps may not run on unrelated background processes, such as cryptocurrency mining.

Well, a key part of the new guidelines discusses cryptocurrencies and how cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies can be integrated into new app development for the Apple App Store.

Apple has updated its App Store guidelines to disallow all apps from supporting on-device cryptocurrency mining. This is not a move against cryptocurrency apps in general.

The new language covers both types of cryptocurrency mining, active and passive, while ensuring Apple users aren't experiencing any performance drain from either.

Apps may not mine for cryptocurrencies unless the processing is performed off device (e.g. cloud-based mining).
This regulation could serve as a warning to similar apps and ads on the App Store that claim to provide services to users while secretly mining in the background. These conditions extend to apps providing cryptocurrency futures trading, and other crypto-securities or quasi-securities trading.

Speaking to CCN at the time, Jaxx CEO Anthony Di Iorio revealed Apple had stuck to approving a select six cryptocurrencies, namely: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Ripple and the then DAO token. An app can facilitate an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) if it comes from "established banks, securities firms, future commission merchants, or other approved financial institutions".

Apple is also cutting down on third-party apps providing crypto transactions on approved exchanges. In a dedicated cryptocurrency section, the company goes on to break down in more detail what is - and, crucially, is not - permissible. They also may no longer offer cryptocurrency as a reward for completing tasks.
