Apple Watch: Sorry no farts allowed

SORRY no farts allowed.

Apple is trying to put a lid on flatulence by rejecting new apps for fart noises on its Apple Watch.

Cult of Mac reports that Apple has already rejected the first Apple Watch fart app.

The app, something of a glorified whoopee cushion, was supposed to allow you to put your iPhone underneath someone's seat cushion and then use your Apple Watch as a remote to let a fart sound rip.

But Fart Watch has been given a big thumbs down from Apple on the following basis:

2.11 - Apps that duplicate Apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them, such as fart, burp, flashlight, and Kama Sutra Apps

8.1 - Apps must comply with all terms and conditions explained in the Guidelines for Using Apple Trademarks and Copyrights and the Apple Trademark List

2.11 Details
We noticed that your Apple Watch app is primarily a fart app. We do not accept fart apps on Apple Watch.

Given Apple is trying to create a prestige brand with its watch, with its gold edition selling from $14,000 to $24,000 in Australia, its probably not surprising.

Though we wonder if even Pharrel and Beyoncé wouldn't mind using their Apple Watches to fart on command.

Beyoncé  wore her special-edition gold one to the Coachella music festival.
