Uniswap Labs just released its newest crypto wallet, allowing users to trade and manage their digital assets more securely. However, Apple has yet to green light an iOS launch for the wallet due to security concerns that Apple says can’t be addressed in iOS.
In a blog post shared by Uniswap Labs on their website, they stated that Apple had cited “security and privacy concerns” as its reason for not allowing them to launch the wallet on the App Store. A spokesperson from Uniswap Labs noted that the wallet was built from the ground up with user security and privacy as top priorities, but acknowledged that Apple’s high security standards may be difficult to meet.
The new crypto wallet will make it much easier for users to store and trade their digital assets without worrying about security or privacy issues. It also provides enhanced features such as two-factor authentication, an intuitive user interface, and full compatibility with all major cryptocurrencies. Uniswap Labs claims that the wallet is far more secure than any other existing app in this field, but until Apple gives it their stamp of approval, users won’t be able to access these features on iOS devices.
7/ So why a limited early release from a team committed to access for anyone? Simply put, Apple won’t green-light our launch, & we don’t know why.
We submitted our mobile app months ago—and even though we are 100% compliant with their specifications, we’re still stuck in limbo🤡 pic.twitter.com/oAr90NrkPd

At present, there doesn’t seem to be a way around this problem since Apple is unwilling to compromise on its security policies. Even though many people are disappointed with this decision, some are understanding since Apple takes great care when deciding which apps should be available on its platform. As such, it may take some time before Apple changes its mind about Uniswap Labs’ new crypto wallet — if ever.
In the meantime, Uniswap Labs is fully committed to providing customers with safe and secure services regardless of device type or operating system used. They have already rolled out a version for Android devices so those who are not using iPhones still benefit from their services and can trade cryptocurrency without worrying about security or privacy breaches.
Ultimately, only time will tell if Uniswap Labs’ new crypto wallet will make its way onto the App Store eventually or if Apple will continue to resist giving it their seal of approval. What is certain however is that Uniswap Labs takes customer security seriously — something we all should appreciate — regardless of whether you’re an iPhone user or not.
