In conjunction with its annual developer conference WWDC 2023, Apple has updated its App Store App Store review guidelines with the aim of weeding out fake and fake apps and games.

In a post on its official website, Apple said, “App spoofing is now against the rules App Store“.

It also pointed out that applications submitted to the App Store while impersonating other apps or services will have their developers kicked out of the Apple Developer Program and will not be able to submit or benefit from other applications in the store. From the advantages that Apple offers to developers.

The updated guidelines prohibit developers from copying other apps’ code or user interface or using a similar name to another popular app.

And he comes Apple’s decision After several incidents of fake applications and games spreading on the App Store, many fake applications of the popular ChatGPT chatbot were widely downloaded and their developers were able to make huge profits. From subscriptions and ads, these apps are not linked to Open AI developed for ChatGPT bot in any official image.

The new guidelines primarily target apps and games that copy the interfaces and names of other original apps and games.

There are still questions about how Apple applies these rules, for example, there are different apps and games but they have similar names.

Other changes included in the new guidelines include requiring apps that contain ads to provide users with options to flag inappropriate or age-appropriate ads.
