We received the following message after an app rejection asking us to remove callkit integration due to some ruling on China.
5. Legal: Preamble
Guideline 5.0 - Legal
Recently, the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) requested that CallKit functionality be deactivated in all apps available on the China App Store. During our review, we found that your app currently includes CallKit functionality and has China listed as an available territory in iTunes Connect.
This app cannot be approved with CallKit functionality active in China. Please make the appropriate changes and resubmit this app for review. If you have already ensured that CallKit functionality is not active in China, you may reply to this message in Resolution Center to confirm. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) call functionality continues to be allowed but can no longer take advantage of CallKit’s intuitive look and feel. CallKit can continue to be used in apps outside of China."
The app is currently deployed to multiple countries including China.Removing China from deployed app store or totally removing Callkit is currently out of the option. We are currently apprehensive on the proper implementation on how to disable the feature specifically just for the Chinese region without violating yet another guideline. Does anybody have the same problem or knows an acceptable approach for this?
