MetaTrader’s removal from App Store: What Happened? 

Having been around for more than a decade, the MetaTrader platform has rocketed in popularity, becoming the top choice for online traders as well as industry stakeholders. However, as of 23rd September 2022, Apple has pulled MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and MetaTrader 5 (MT5) from the App Store.  

MetaQuotes, the company behind MT4 and MT5, received news from Apple stating that the applications do not comply with the App Store’s reviewed guidelines. Details regarding the case have yet to be confirmed by MetaQuotes [1].  

However, the desktop version of MT4 and MT5 still remain available, while Android users can rest assured knowing that the Google Play Store versions have not been affected. 

MT4 and MT5 Alternatives 

With no resolution in sight for now, traders may wish to explore other alternatives. Here are three in-house options for you to consider. 

1. Vantage WebTrader  

Unlike MT4 and MT5 which requires downloading from the App Store, Vantage WebTrader allows traders to open and close positions and conduct technical analysis without downloading any software. 

With just a stable internet connection and a reliable browser, traders can have the flexibility to switch from desktop to mobile easily. The Vantage WebTrader also comes with the classic tools and indicators that MT4 and MT5 offers. 

Here’s a snapshot of what the WebTrader looks like on the Vantage platform.
