Hi Guys , Last week I tried to submit my Game , I spent almost 2 years developing it. However, I received this message and am very confused and worried. Although I claim to have carefully read apple's policy on application submission, I think I have complied with it. I also tried email contact apple , but seem to get the same response (seems to be automatic ). My Submission ID: 4cea4788-f744-480a-a172-cac8b42b280a Hello, Thank you for submitting your app for review. We need additional time to evaluate your submission and Apple Developer Program account.

My app keeps getting rejected because of Guideline 2.1 -Performance - App Completeness. "We found that your in-app purchase products exhibited one or more bugs when reviewed on iPad running iOS 15.6.1 on Wi-Fi. Specifically, your app still did not produce further action when we tapped on the “Buy” feature. We are unable to provide further information regarding our review environment." I found that this was caused by SKProductsRequest returning 0 products and returns the productIdentifiers as invalidProductIdentifers. I have tested the IAPs on multiple devices and simulators running different iOS versions and they all work perfectly. I replied to App Review with a screen recording of the IAPs working on an iPhone running iOS 15.6.1 and they replied with: "While we appreciate that your app is intended primarily for use on iPhone, in order to bring your app into compliance with App Store guidelines, all apps designed for use on iPhone must still be formatted correctly and behave properly when running on iPad." I am not sure what the problem seems to be here.

Hi all, I'm about to publish my first app to the Apple store. My first submission was rejected for a number of different reasons, but I solved the issues and I resubmitted the app again on Friday. Apple replied with this message: Hello, Thank you for submitting your app for review. We need additional time to evaluate your submission and Apple Developer Program account. Your submission status will appear as "Rejected" in App Store Connect while we investigate. However, we do not require a revised binary or additional information from you at this time. While there may be a delay due to high submission volumes, we are working to complete our review as soon as possible. If we notice any issues that require your attention, we will let you know via App Store Connect. If we find no issues with your submission or account, the submission will be approved. We will notify you as soon as there is new information to share. Other review inquiries may be filed via the Apple Developer Contact Us page. Best regards, App Store Review I set the release date of my app for the 20th October, but I've read of people who had a lot of issues with the review process or who have been stuck in review for months, so I start to believe my app won't make it for this date. Did anybody else have the same message from Apple? Do you think it's still possible for me to make it? Thank you

submission errror Hi, I updated to xcode14 rc1 on weekend and builds of my ios app incl my watch companion app work well on phone & watch devices But upon submission I get TMS-90398: Invalid WatchKit Support TMS-90398: Invalid WatchKit Support - The bundle contains an invalid implementation of WatchKit. The app may have been built or signed with non-compliant or pre-release tools. Visit developer.apple.com for more information. right xcode? Now, I did verify that I use the right XCode by looking at the Contents of the Info.plist within the compiled/bundled up apps:: ios app: DTXcodeBuild: 14A309 DTSDKBuild: 20A360 contained watch app & watch extension: DTXcodeBuild: 14A309 DTSDKBuild: 20R362 bitcode? I verified there is no bitcode as I read thats deprecated I have no idea what to check at this point :(

A question regarding compliance for 3.1 Payments 3.1.1 In-App Purchase: Any credits or in-game currencies purchased via in-app purchase may not expire, and you should make sure you have a restore mechanism for any restorable in-app purchases. We are developing a New Year event for our free-to-play game. Players will be able to earn a special event virtual currency (VC) and spend it on additional content. Since this specific VC can be earned for a limited time only, event-specific content for purchase is time-limited as well. Players will not have the products they can spend New Year VC on when New Year event is over. Once these products are no longer available we will refund any event VC left-overs with our regular evergreen VC. The question is can we add this event VC to in-app purchase bundles if the event VC is refunded with regular VC when unspent event VC expires

Dear App Review team. Our app handles accounts linked to insurance contract. Currently, in order to delete an account, it is necessary to contact the user support desk. Therefore, when deleting an account linked to an insurance contract, We would like to make a flow to contact the support desk, but is meeting the account deletion requirement? When deleting an account not linked to an insurance contract, We intend to allow deletion without contacting the support desk. For the detailed flow, please refer to below:

3.2.2 (ii) of App Store Review Guidelines says i can't monetize built-in capabilities provided by the hardware or operating system, such as Push Notifications. But can I sell notifications if my server does some processing (and this processing is not a built-in capability) before sending these notifications?

This is the detail message :From AppleGuideline 5.5 - Mobile Device ManagementYour app uses a mobile device management (MDM) profile but does not have MDM capability granted.Next StepsTo resolve this issue, your Account Holder will need to request Mobile Device Management Capability.My membership is Apple Developer Program - Organizations.That means I cannot create any such MDM certificate or add any feature related to MDM capability to my App.As I understand, MDM service need no xcode code setting, therefore I am confusing about this issus.Moreover, the response from Apple for more explanation is :Hello,Thank you for your response. Since your iTunes Connect status is Rejected, a new binary will be required. Make the desired metadata changes when you upload the new binary.We look forward to reviewing your resubmitted app.Best regards,App Review StoreAnyone has solution, please!Thank you

Suddenly getting this error after making minor (storyboard) updates to app, when trying to upload to App Store connect. App uses Firebase and RealmSwift API's, so I assume one of them is referencing the API in question. However, I have not updated either framework for months, and previous build was accepted and approved by apple. Searching forums, it appears similar problems were occurring for developers about 3 moths ago. Apple declared it a problem with backend and "fixed." Appears to possibly not be fixed any more...

Why Apple Review Team so Careless The Google Review Process more transparent, clear and Quality. But Apple App review process is completely useless. I don't know why the quality of the apple products does not have with Review Team. Are there hourly paid guys ? A developer developed and with All Apple guideline and updated tools. and We Tested with TestFlight and Friends simulators as well. But Still the reviewers doesn't even know how address customers issue. The communication problem They don't highlight the issue correctly mention some rubbish comments. At least review team should provide more clear detail like screen shots of the bug any other things. Nothing like that, Not point the specific errors or bug just mention useless point. If you look at the Apple forum there thousands of issue very valuable straight forward issue. But the Staff does not know how to handle the customer queries. Can you image Tech Giant in year 2000 period by Steve Jobs image has been destroyed by these young app reviewers. Who odes not provide clear answers feedbacks. It's all begin with hiring non quality workers for cheap money....this is where the problem starts. Can you guys take more responsible rather getting salaries and holidays. Can you work for Apple reputation keep the apple brand name please.....I am highly disappointed about the Staff behaviors and attitude and quality and product knowledge. it should be more clear transparent and more precise address issue one by one solve then and there...... Please learn from Google. I am not happy about the App review Process. the Excuses are pretty childish

Dear Developer, We identified one or more issues with a recent delivery for your app, "COMLAB" 101.0.0 (7.0.0). Please correct the following issues, then upload again. TMS-90338: Non-public API usage - The app references non-public selectors in Comlab: _isKeyDown, _modifiedInput, _modifierFlags, handleNotification:, invalidateInputAccessoryView, isPassthrough, onSuccess:, removeValuesForKeys:completion:, updateSettings:, viewManager. If method names in your source code match the private Apple APIs listed above, altering your method names will help prevent this app from being flagged in future submissions. In addition, note that one or more of the above APIs may be located in a static library that was included with your app. If so, they must be removed. For further information, visit the Technical Support Information at http://developer.apple.com/support/technical/ Though you are not required to fix the following issues, we wanted to make you aware of them: ITMS-90683: Missing Purpose String in Info.plist - Your app‘s code references one or more APIs that access sensitive user data. The app‘s Info.plist file should contain a NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription key with a user-facing purpose string explaining clearly and completely why your app needs the data. If you're using external libraries or SDKs, they may reference APIs that require a purpose string. While your app might not use these APIs, a purpose string is still required. For details, visit: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/protecting_the_user_s_privacy/requesting_access_to_protected_resources Best regards, The App Store Team The problem is we do not understand what the issue is even when reading your automatic message. How can we debug this ? How can we identify the source of the problem ? Do you have any idea of what the problem is ? What we tried : We tried to re-publish the application we currently have on your store (production) with different build number => App rejected with the same automatic message ; We tried to disable one by one every react plugin => App rejected with the same automatic message ; We tried to look for every reference listed in the automatic message using XCode and grep => We found none of those ; We tried to upgrade react & expo => App rejected with the same automatic message ; XCode version : 13.4.1 MacOS version : 12.4 Expo version : 45 React version : 17 Best regards,

Hello, I tried to push a build to TestFlight and received these two errors a few weeks ago. Dear Developer, We identified one or more issues with a recent delivery for your app, "App Name". Please correct the following issues, then upload again. ITMS-90338: Non-public API usage - The app references non-public selectors in "": _isKeyDown, _modifiedInput, _modifierFlags, determineAppInstallationAttributionWithCompletionHandler:, handleNotification:, isPassthrough, lookupAdConversionDetails:, onSuccess:, removeValuesForKeys:completion:, transform:, viewManager. If method names in your source code match the private Apple APIs listed above, altering your method names will help prevent this app from being flagged in future submissions. In addition, note that one or more of the above APIs may be located in a static library that was included with your app. If so, they must be removed. For further information, visit the Technical Support Information at http://developer.apple.com/support/technical/ ITMS-90426: Invalid Swift Support - The SwiftSupport folder is missing. Rebuild your app using the current public (GM) version of Xcode and resubmit it. Best regards, The App Store Team We do not understand what the issue is and how to solve it. I also tried to re-publish the previous successful IPA with a different build number and still meet that two errors. Is there any idea of what the problem is and how to solve it? because this problem exist a few weeks ago and still cannot push the app to TestFlight macOS version: 12.1 XCode version: 13.4.1 Expo version: 6.0.5 Best Regards
