Retro game emulators now allowed in the iOS App Store, but there are some caveats


In what appears to be another move in response to pressure from regulators in the US and EU, Apple has announced that retro game emulators will be allowed in the iOS App Store – though there are some big caveats attached.

This change has been spotted on Apple's app review guidelines (via The Verge), which now state that “retro game console emulator apps may offer to download games”. However, as you would expect, there are some strings attached.
