New App Store Review Guidelines: Gifts, Face ID, ARKit

Paul Hudson:

No app may market itself as “including content or services that it does not actually offer” – specifically iOS-based virus and malware scanners, which have always been nonsense.


Apps may now allow users to send money to others as a gift on two conditions. First, the gift must be a completely optional choice by the giver, and second 100% of the funds must go to the receiver of the gift.
