- The Brave browser has removed its Brave Rewards feature to comply with App Store rules, the company has announced.
The Brave web browser has removed one of its features in an attempt to comply with App Store rules, the company has announced. Brave Rewards allowed users to earn money for seeing ads and then give it to content creators, but Apple said that it contravened various App Store rules.
The feature has now been removed so the Brave app as a whole can remain on the App Store.
The announcement blog post goes on to explain exactly which rules Apple has complained about, specifically guidelines 3.1.1 and 3.2.2. If Brave wasn't updated to comply, it wouldn't be allowed in the store.
The company says that any iOS users who already accumulated Brave Rewards will be able to transfer them to the desktop browser in a future update. You can learn more about the goings-on over on the Brave website.
