Update- Apple Aplogizes
Following social media uproar and heavy criticism from the community, Apple changed its decision to remove iSH from the App Store if the app didn’t remove key functionality. The developers released a follow-up statement revealing that Apple had contacted them and apologized for the experience they had.
The app will remain available for download here.
On October 22nd, developer Theodore Dubois released a fully functional Terminal app for iOS and iPadOS that allows users to interact with a local Linux shell environment. They started the project severals months prior as a beta app but was approved to be released on the App Store by Apple, which came as a surprise to a few, seeing as how Apple had previously removed apps that were similar in nature.
Less than a week after publishing iSH, the developer received a notice from Apple stating that they found the app noncompliant with section 2.5.2 of the App Store review guidelines and that Apple would remove the app from their App Store if they did not submit an update within 2 weeks.
The developer released a statement on Sunday November 8th advising their follower that they expect the app to be removed by Apple on November 9th. You can read their full statement here.
