I think Apple removed all the emulators except for ones for really ancient systems that are no longer copyrighted, like Vectrex and Spectrum.

I missed out on MAME and GBA, sadly. Hope someday more emus slip thru for users to enjoy. On Android you can get whatever emulator you want.

iOS: iPad Air 2 128GB Space Gray, iPod Touch 5 32GB Space Gray
Android: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Black/Gray

Copyright lasts 75 years for corporations, or for an individual it lasts your lifetime plus 75 years after death. So there's no way that those systems are old enough to be out of copyright.

The vectrex one is an official app. They've got the rights for it. The spectrum one sells games they have the rights to as well

Search for mame here and you'll see links to the nes and mame emulator. Surely people can't be that lazy !!
