"These extensions are distributed through native Mac applications, and Apple says they are much more secure and lightweight", 9to5mac explains of Safari App Extensions, adding that "They don't see any web browsing details, and because they run through the native Mac app, they put much less of a strain on memory and CPU performance".

Along with new apps, the guidelines will apply to existing apps as well.

Apple has updated its review guidelines to specifically prohibit iOS and Mac apps uploaded on the company's official App Store from utilizing users' devices for cryptocurrency mining operations. "Apps, including any third party advertisements displayed within them, may not run unrelated background processes, such as cryptocurrency mining", the new guideline reads.

Instead, the iPhone-maker is encouraging developers to embrace its new Safari App Extensions platform which was introduced back in 2010.

Such extensions will still work with Safari 12, but being depreciated means it's only a matter of time until support is dropped entirely, at which point only Safari App Extensions will work.

ICOs must comply with "all applicable laws", Apple said.

The ban is clearly spelled out in the new set of developer guidelines for the App Store released during Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which took place last week.

In July 2017, Apple 'approved' Dash as a cryptocurrency.

Making its position clear " Purchasing and Currencies 11.17 Apps may facilitate transmission of approved virtual currencies provided that they do so in compliance with all state and federal laws for the territories in which the app functions". Apple allows apps like Coinbase and Robinhood to enable users to trade Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies, so it's not a complete ban on mobile crypto. Apps also can not offer cryptocurrencies as a reward for performing certain tasks such as downloading certain apps, or posting messages on social media.
