This is due to the December 10th update and our changes to the system to comply with Apple iOS guidelines. Please see the official announcement here for more information:

You can, however, perform a one-time transfer of your funds to another browser wallet – see the following document for more information:

@Mattches Thank you for your reply, unfortunately one of my main questions I still haven’t found a satisfactory answer for is: Was there a payout of earned BAT for December 2020 or was the earned BAT deleted/lost permanently due to the change of Apple iOS guidelines and Brave compliancy?

Apologies for missing that part of your question.
The final iOS payout would have happened on December 5th (which would have been payout for the month of November). So there was no payout for December, 2020 due to the changes.

@Matches I now understand that there was no Payout for December 2020. Thanks for your response
