By June 30, 2020 apps within the Apple App Store that use HTML 5 must be in full compliance with Sections 4, 5, and 6 of Guideline 4.7 of the Apple App Store Review Guidelines. The first extension of the September 2019 deadline was extended to March 2020 and Apple’s second extension is extended to the end of June 2020. Some online gambling apps have already begun to comply with the guidelines.

App developers now have the opportunity to enhance their designs and address any issues that resulted in rejections from Apple. The App Store wants gambling apps to be designed in a manner for operation within the Apple iOS operating system instead of simply being a vehicle for a platform running within the operator’s website.
