Apple now allowing apps to transmit Bitcoin?

HUH!?!

This is a pretty big turn around for Apple. Has the massive negative publicity they got from Bitcoiners has worn them down?

However, the wording there says "approved", so... what does that mean? There's no further mention there, so it could mean anything.

I'm skeptical for now... Apple doesn't have a good track record for being transparent, etc. etc.

Apple indulges in a huge amount of user monitoring. And they're very cooperative with requests from Uncle Sam.

I think it's more that the powers that be want a closer and better a look at Bitcoin use - and users.

And who's in a better position than Apple to provide that information to them?

Samsung.

Then "Others". :)

But here's perhaps a better table:
