Apple Updates App Store Review Guidelines

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

Apple’s new guidelines can be found on its developer website, but we’ve highlighted a few notable changes below.

One change getting a lot of attention are the rules around ads in push notifications. Nick Heer:

Ads delivered by push notifications were once verboten, but some developers ignored that rule and Apple didn’t police it.

It’s not so much an change in the rules as changing the written rules to reflect the de facto policy. It sounds bad, but in my experience it’s easy to avoid apps that send any unwanted notifications.
