iPhone Reference Guide E-Book Rejected For Having “iPhone” In Title [Update: Approved]

Just when we thought they couldn’t get any more absurd, Apple has given us another App store rejection for the books. According to a tweet by Jason Snell, Macworld Editor-in-Chief, Apple has rejected an e-book app version of “Macworld iPhone Superguide,” a reference manual about the iPhone, for containing the word iPhone.

What really drives this one home is that Apple is being blatantly hypocritical with this rejection, as David Pogue was able to submit his “iPhone: The Missing Manual” without a single problem.

We expect to see Apple turn this one around pretty quickly, if for no other reason than because it’s completely and totally ridiculous.

Update: @jsnell was kind enough to let us know that their app was approved later that day, and all requests for changes were recanted. We thought this was too crazy even for Apple, so it’s good to see they resolved it quickly. Kudos to them for the fast response time.

Now available: Macworld’s iPhone and iPod Touch Superguide [App Store, $4.99]
