Apple Bans Cryptocurrency Mining on iOS

Apple Updates App Store Guidelines, Tightens Rules for Crypto-Related Apps

Apple's App Store To Host New Support For Cryptocurrencies

Apple is not the first tech company to take such measures of banning cryptocurrency mining. Apple has now outright banned any and all apps that mine cryptocurrencies from all of its platforms.

Cupertino's new dev rules restrict apps that drain the battery, put unnecessary strain on an iPhone's or iPad's resources, and cause the fancy gadgets to generate excessive heat. In digital currency mining, each of these things is likely to take place. According to Apple, "Apps, including any third party advertisements displayed within them, may not run unrelated background processes, such as cryptocurrency mining".

Apple's new guidelines "sound like they're nearly written in response to what Onavo and others have been doing", said Will Strafach, a researcher who has studied Onavo Protect and focuses on the security of Apple's iOS mobile operating system. The revised guidelines introduced subpoint (ii), which instructs that "Apps may not mine for cryptocurrencies unless the processing is performed off device (e.g. cloud-based mining)". Exchanges can offer fully-featured apps offering trading abilities, as long as the apps are issued by the exchanges themselves and not third parties. In addition, "Cryptocurrency apps may not offer currency for completing tasks, such as downloading other apps, encouraging other users to download, posting to social networks, etc", Apple said. These applications will in theory, go on to be available on iOS and OSX devices and thus, any apps uploaded to the App Store should be considered to have the potential to be received and used by an terrible lot of people. And considering the uproar Apple faced the last time users noticed battery life decreasing, we can hardly blame the company for being careful.
