Apps should not rapidly drain battery, generate excessive heat, or put unnecessary strain on device resources.
In an update to Apple's developer policies, the tech giant has now stipulated that any app containing "background processes" which are unrelated to the app - such as cryptocurrency mining - are now specifically banned. Along with new apps, the guidelines will apply to existing apps as well.

It also gathers information about users' devices, their location, apps installed on the gadgets and how people use those apps, what websites they visit, and the amount of data used, Facebook wrote in answers to Congressional questions that the social network operator posted online Monday.

The app even made it to number 3 in the finance category of the App Store before Apple pulled it down.
Similarly, Apple is also allowing apps to facilitate crypto transactions "on an approved exchange, provided they are offered by the exchange itself".

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.
