Without being announced, it seems The Binding of Issac: Rebirth, a 2014 Indie title from Super Meat Boy creator Edmund McMillen, has been rejected by Apple to be released on the App Store for iOS devices.
Tyrone Rodriguez, a producer on the game, sent out this tweet that alludes to the idea of a Binding of Issac release on iOS, and the subsequent rejection:

The game was orginally reject in 2012 by Nintendo for release on the Wii U and 3DS for it’s religious themes, but was later let through the censors in 2014. It appears Apple wasn’t so easy on the game. The rejection notice from Apple reads:
Your app contains content or features that depict violence towards, or abuse of, children, which is not allowed on the App Store
No official annoucement was made for The Binding of Issac to be released on iOS, but McMillen has alluded to the idea in the past. At this point, it is unclear weather iOS users will be able to play the game in the future.
