With the reinstatement, the wallet app, which allows users to interact with decentralized applications, is now available on all major platforms, including as an add-on in Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Brave, and as a beta app for iOS and Android.
This news comes as Apple looks to be cracking down on dapps, with Coinbase recently removing the dapp browser functionality from the Coinbase Wallet app to “comply with App Store policy.”
