Recently, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) took a softer approach toward its policy on virtual currency by allowing Bitcoin wallets and in-app Bitcoin payments. And now, to take advantage of the currency, the apps facilitating Bitcoin are live in the App Store.

According to Coindesk, Coin Pocket is the first Bitcoin app for iOS to re-enter the Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL) App Store. Coin Pocket app allows users to perform similar operations as they use to do previously with the iPhone wallet apps like Coinbase and Blockchain.

With the help of the app, users will be able to send and receive Bitcoin. Also, Apple iOS users will be able to check the price of the virtual currency and collect private keys at one place and encrypt them, which is useful for quick transfers of funds from other wallets.
