The true reason behind Apple's rule 4.2.6

I think now I know the true reason behind Apple's 4.2.6 rule to block apps made by any app builder service, is not the quality as they claim to be, but rather it is the $$$. Yes, they want you, the app developer, to buy an Apple Macbook to develop and compile app for the App Store, nothing else.

So, do you want to publish to app store? then forget about online app builders and go buy yourself a Mackbook and you are fine.

I've found other App Builders companies suffers the same thing with Apple and no solutions yet in the horizon (and will never be).

Some links on this:

How do you explain us (mac users) that all of our apps are rejected?
Because you are not developing using XCode. You are downloading SC template project. What I meant by using Macbook, is to use both the hardware and the software of Apple.

Hi Majed! I use this service as part of my job at my company. I build 3 apps a year so I get lost in all of these changes. I really just need a plain and simple explanation of what is going on. Can you help me understand? Are we not allowed to create new apps and upload them to the Apple app store anymore? At all? 
Are we allowed to update current apps in the Apple app store?
Are tons and tons of people "screwed" with this? 
I would love to stay in touch with someone who can help me understand this better since I am not overly knowledgeable in this area as it is only a small part of my job at my company.

THANK YOU so much for your help!
I'm just like you, a normal user / customer of SeattleClouds. I have investigated this issue world wide (i.e. with other companies like SC), and the sad answer to your questions is: Yes, all online app makers (including big names) are no longer allowed to submit to Apple App store. It is sad but this is the new world we have to live with.

Thank you for the reply... so what are you doing about it? Only creating Android apps moving forward? OR just stopping doing mobile apps all-together?
