Did Apple get the censorship pen out again? Presumably, some users will speak of censorship in this situation.
Apple Protects Devices and Users
Rather, the iPhone maker is doing something good for both the customer and the devices. However, Apple does not show that it is against crypto-mining.
Instead, users should be happy to know that they are using their devices for some time and are not inefficiently throwing money out the window. At the moment, crypto-mining on the iPhone or iPad is one thing above all: a resource-eater. But you get even after days and weeks of mine work no reasonably meaningful share of any crypto currency. You pay for it.
Partially operated apps also without the consent of the users. They used resources to generate cryptocurrency for the app developer.
Wallets and marketplaces allowed further
Trading with cryptocurrencies can continue through the mobile devices. Because only such apps are prohibited, trying to make calculations directly on the devices.
Apple also protects against Schindluder at ICOs
A small addition there is also the trade in cryptocurrencies. If new cryptop currencies are offered on the initial issue (ICO, initial coin offering) via an app, then only from the official side. If it is not a certified bank or comparable financial services provider, such apps may no longer offer ICOs.
Again, Apple protects its users. Because in the recent past, unfortunately too much bumbling was driven with it. Some idea providers collected funds for a new cryptocurrency. Then a few weeks or months later, the plug was pulled in the project. The users remained seated on their investments.
