Apple Has Rejected ‘Samsung Pay Mini’ App For The iOS App Store

It is very evident that Apple maintains a firm grip over the AppStore and it will be very wise to assume this hold isn’t going away any soon. The Cupertino based company strongly believes that the quality of apps is to be ensured by carrying out an approval process on each and every piece of software submitted.

This supposedly maintains a level of user- experience. The ‘Samsung Pay Mini’ app was supposed to bring the Samsung mobile payment platform to the iOS. According to ET News, Apple has marked the app as unfit for users and has official rejected it for undisclosed reasons.

The Samsung Pay mini app is a simple mobile payment service which makes use of Samsung Pay. Samsung is going to unveil the app to the world at the Consumer Electronics show in the first week of January. The Samsung Pay Mini app will work similarly to Apple Pay and Android Pay.

The consumers will be able to shop goods on a contactless basis with their payment details registered with the app. Samsung had hoped it would be able to introduce the payment service on other forums but apparently Apple has killed that dream.

Samsung has confirmed the rejection by Apple and has decided it will not go for an appeal which is usually a right the developer reserves. Samsung can easily offer the app to owners of its own hardware such as the Galaxy range but it requires permission from the likes of Apple if it wants the iPhone and iPad owners to benefit from the app.

The rejection by Apple will certainly not dampen Samsung’s spirits. Samsung has confirmed it has tested the app with certain credit card companies which means in the CES 2017 we will see how fantastic the app actually is.
