A very worrisome trend has begun taking shape as far as iPhones are concerned. Various consumers have begun using these devices to mine cryptocurrencies. Not only is this unprofitable, it will also destroy one’s hardware. As such, Apple has banned cryptocurrency mining applications from its App Store altogether.It is evident a lot of people have high hopes of mining cryptocurrency with whatever hardware they have at their disposal. Even so, there are plenty of types of hardware which are simply unsuitable for this. Mining cryptocurrencies is a very hardware‐intensive process, which can barely be performed by normal computers these days. Using a mobile device is completely out of the question.
