Apple changes its App Store terms and publishes its guidelines

Apple's relaxing some of the restrictions it had put in place for iOS developers – and it's also published its App Store Review Guidelines for the first time.

Earlier this year, Apple's rules had prevented iPhone developers from writing code using third-party software and had also stopped some advertisers – including rival Google - from receiving usage data.

In a statement, Apple said "We have listened to our developers and taken much of their feedback to heart. In particular, we are relaxing all restrictions on the development tools used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code."

The first public edition of Apple's App Store Review Guidelines reveals the document to be practical and humorous.  It notes "we're keeping an eye out for the kids", accepting that many parents don't set up parental controls, and advises would-be developers "If you want to criticize a religion, write a book. If you want to describe sex… create a medical app."
