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. Though there are multiple changes to the guidelines concerning this issue, the company seems to be putting a special focus on cracking down on apps used for cryptocurrency mining.
In an official post the company said, "Apps, including any third party advertisements displayed within them, may not run unrelated background processes, such as cryptocurrency mining".
The revised guidelines introduced subpoint (ii), which instructs that "Apps may not mine for cryptocurrencies unless the processing is performed off device (e.g. cloud-based mining)". Earlier in the year, Apple removed Calendar 2 from the Mac App Store because the app would offer mining cryptocurrency on devices in exchange for premium features. This is not a move against cryptocurrency apps in general.
