Will the Expo Client app for iOS be removed soon?

Hello, just last week Ionic posted on their blog stating that their Ionic View app was removed from the App Store. Despite having been there for 2 years, Apple now claims it violates rule 2.5.2

Apps should be self-contained in their bundles, and may not read or write data outside the designated container area, nor may they download, install, or execute code, including other apps.

It appears Apple is suddenly taking a more aggressive stance against developer apps that allow end-users to build and preview their own apps.

Since it also downloads and executes code, will this affect the Expo Client app?

Our most recent update submitted to the App Store was approved by Apple. We believe the Expo Client conforms to all the current guidelines that Apple has laid out (we made some changes recently to make sure we were in line with the policies), so we don’t anticipate any problems with the Expo Client remaining in the App Store on iOS.
