Apple’s Approval Process Delays Uniswap’s Mobile App Launch; Firm Launches Limited Trial Release

On March 3, 2023, Uniswap Labs, the firm behind the decentralized exchange Uniswap, announced the launch of a limited early-release application through Apple’s Testflight program. The company stated that the limited release was due to Apple not granting approval for the application launch, and the team does not know why.

Uniswap Labs Launches Limited Early-Release Mobile App via Apple’s Testflight Platform

Uniswap Labs launched a mobile application for Uniswap via Apple’s Testflight platform. The self-custodial, open-source mobile application is available for a limited release. However, the company noted that Apple has not given the application approval to launch. “So why a limited early release from a team committed to access for anyone? Simply put, Apple won’t green-light our launch, [and] we don’t know why,” the company tweeted.

The creator of one of the largest decentralized exchanges by volume stated that the firm submitted the mobile application to Apple months ago. “Even though we are 100% compliant with their specifications, we’re still stuck in limbo,” Uniswap said. “So if we have to wait for Apple, we thought it’d be more fun if we waited together,” the decentralized finance (defi) firm added.

The company decided to open its internal Testflight application to 10,000 users, the maximum approved by Apple. Uniswap stated that it would begin sharing access codes “across multiple channels and time zones to reach as many parts of our community as possible” to get started. Uniswap’s limited early-release mobile application for iOS Testflight follows the creation of the Uniswap Bridge Assessment Committee, revealed on March 2nd.

Statistics recorded for the last 24 hours as of March 4 indicate that there has been $2.81 billion in trades, with Uniswap version 3 (v3) leading the pack with $1.21 billion in trade volume. Uniswap’s Arbitrum One decentralized exchange (dex) commands the second-largest volume with $195.98 million. Uniswap v3 offers 947 coins across 1,725 pairs, and the dex has been visited 3,388,922 times this month.
