AppHub

AppHub (comments):

Use git push to instantly update your iOS apps. Stop waiting weeks to iterate on your app. Just add our iOS framework and start pushing updates.

[…]

Section 3.3.2 of the iOS Developer Program explicitly permits this “provided that code does not change the primary or advertised purpose of the Application as submitted to the App Store.”

[…]

You can make changes to JavaScript code and assets (images, sounds, etc).

[…]

Yes, AppHub only supports React Native.

edko:

The PhoneGap app (and probably many others) has been pushing JS code without the need of Apple’s approval for a long time now, and Apple hasn’t had any problem with it. If this is not abused, to do things against the ToS, it is a really nice thing to have.

However, the very next guideline, 3.3.3, states:

Without Apple’s prior written approval or as permitted under Section 3.3.25 (In-App Purchase API), an Application may not provide, unlock or enable additional features or functionality through distribution mechanisms other than the App Store or VPP/B2B Program Site.

I wouldn’t plan on Apple continuing to approve applications that do this. However, if you are already using React Native, anyway, I guess you would not be risking very much by giving it a try.
