MetaTrader apps removed from Apple App Store: what you need to know

What now for existing MT4 and MT5 users?

Both new and existing users are impacted by Apple’s latest move. If you have the MT4 or MT5 iOS app already installed on your device you can continue to trade with it, but you will not be able to make any future updates.

New users can no longer download the application from the Apple App Store. They can still, however, download it from the Google Play Store.

To date, MT4 and MT5 app users on Android and non-iOS desktop systems can still log in to their accounts and trade normally.
