Vaping apps have become increasingly popular over the past few years as the e-cigarette market continues to grow rapidly. Innovative and useful applications provide vapers with key advice, information and support in their quest to ditch cigarettes and utilise e-cigs to their full potential.

Apps like Vapemate will help you to track your progress since switching to vaping by providing effective calculation processes to the vaping world. Also using a calculator system, E-juice lab will aid DIY vapers in formulating the perfect e-liquid based on their personal preferences, while various other apps help to ensure e-cigarette safety by advising vapers on the importance of ohms law and other technical components of e-cigarettes.

Planet of the Vapes reveal Apple’s vaping app ban

Many other weird and wonderful vaping apps are available for download and one of these is the Planet of the Vapes Forum app. This app provides a platform for the vaping community to come together and discuss the latest developments within the world of e-cigarettes and it is Planet of the Vapes (POTV) who revealed Apple’s bemusing decision to ‘reject vaping apps’.

Planet of the Vapes were contacted by apple, who informed them that they had chosen to “reject new apps and any updates and upgrades to existing releases that contain any content related to nicotine.” Planet of the Vapes, with good reason, felt aggrieved by Apple’s actions and contacted the technology giant to dispute the issue. Apple soon responded and stuck firmly to their guns, upholding the ban but without providing an explanation or reasoning behind their decision.

The reason behind Apple’s decision

Who knows what Apple are thinking, but their lack of clarity and omission of any explanation could mean that they have big developments in store. This of course enticed speculation around the matter and conspiracy theories started to surface. People then started to deliberate whether Apple were planning a surprise entry into the vaping market especially due to Apple’s recent patent of a vaporizer.

Some sources were quick to dismiss this theory however the true reason behind Apple’s actions is still up in the air and the fact that they stated “This is a business decision and we do not go into the reasons for this decision.” seems somewhat unnerving.

So, what do you think Apple’s reasoning behind their decision is? Let us know in the comments below.
