According to the latest update of its App Store Review Guidelines, applications may use in-app purchase to sell and sell services related to NFTs, including minting, listing or transferring. However, the Cupertino-headquartered company noted:

"Apps may allow users to browse NFT collections owned by others, provided that the apps may not include buttons, external links, or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms other than in-app purchase."

Apple also said applications should not distinguish iOS users from each other, meaning no unique features for NFT holders are allowed within the app. The company prohibited unique access depending on what crypto users own as well.
