Of all the apps Apple might get upset about, one that lets you emulate classic DOS games on your iPhone doesn’t seem like it would make the top of the list.
Someone at Apple clearly disagrees, however. iDOS 2 developer Chaoji Li revealed this week that Apple rejected an update to his DOS-emulation app — on the grounds that it launches executable code. That’s despite the fact that some version of Li’s iDOS app has been in the App Store since 2010.
Li posted Apple’s message warning him about pending removal from the App Store in a blog post titled “iDOS 2 will be gone soon.”
“I hope Apple will come to its senses that the app is not doing anything wrong,” Li told Cult of Mac. “I am currently trying to argue within a resolution center, which is like a mail thread, where you can post messages and arguments. It’s a slow turnaround, though, and you have no idea who you are dealing with.”
