Edit app bundle information

You can edit which apps belong to your app bundle only until the app bundle is approved. If your app bundle has been submitted to App Review and is still pending approval, you may remove it from review to make changes.

You can make the following changes without needing additional review:

  • Rearrange the apps in the bundle

  • Edit the bundle description and marketing URL

  • Change the primary language of the bundle

  • Change the pricing and availability of the bundle

  • Use an automatically generated app bundle icon

  • Remove custom app bundle icon

Your app bundle will need to be reviewed again if you make the following changes:

  • Add localizations

  • Change an existing app bundle name or a custom app bundle icon

To change a property of derived metadata, edit the app information for the primary app. The app bundle metadata will be updated automatically when you make changes to the app’s information. Alternatively, choose a different primary app for the app bundle.

Required role: Account Holder, Admin, App Manager, or Marketing. View role permissions.

Edit app bundle information

  1. From Apps, select your app bundle.

  2. Under App information, edit the name, description, or marketing URL.

  3. To add, delete, or reorder the apps in the bundle, click the Edit button next to Apps in This Bundle.

    Adding, deleting and rearranging the apps in the bundle will update the derived information once those changes have been saved.

  4. Under Availability and Price, change the price or select/unselect Cleared for Sale option.

  5. On the top right, click Save.

Remove a custom app bundle icon

The ability to upload bundle icon was deprecated. If your app bundle is using a custom app bundle icon, you can delete the icon at any time and your bundle will revert back to an automatically generated icon that displays icons of the first four apps in your bundle.

Note: Once the custom icon has been removed, you can only use the default icon going forward.

  1. From Apps, select your app bundle.

  2. Scroll down to the General Information section.

  3. Hold the pointer over the icon that you want to delete, then click the delete button (–).

Set availability for an app bundle

After you’ve submitted an app bundle for App Review and it’s been approved, it’ll automatically become available for sale when all of the apps it contains are available and all other requirements are met.

In order to be available, app bundles must meet the following requirements:

  • Apps in the bundle must be either all paid or all free. A paid app bundle can only include paid apps and must be offered at a reduced price. Each app in a free app bundle must be free and offer at least one auto-renewable subscription.

  • Paid app bundles must be sold at a reduced price, which is a price tier less than the sum total of the individual app prices in the bundle.

  • A paid app bundle’s price must not be lower than the highest app price in the bundle. If an app in the bundle goes to a price that is higher than the price of the bundle, the bundle will automatically be removed from the store.

  • There are no bundle-specific country or region settings. An app bundle will be live only where all member apps have common countries or regions.

  • Only ten bundles can be marked as cleared for sale at any time per developer account. If you have ten bundles marked cleared for sale, you can create additional bundles, but you can’t select Cleared for Sale option for an additional bundle unless you first unselect it from another bundle.

  • A single app can be in no more than three cleared-for-sale bundles at one time.

View an app bundle’s availability

While an app bundle can have the status Ready for Sale, it might not be available on the App Store. You can check its availability from the app bundle page.

  1. From Apps, select your app bundle.

    If the app bundle isn’t available, a warning message appears at the top of the page. The message states the reasons that the app bundle isn’t available, such as incompatible pricing.

    A warning message “To make this bundle available on the App Store, you must choose a compatible price.” is displayed on the App bundle detail page
  2. Under Availability and Price, view the reason your app bundle might not be available in a specific country or region.

    For example, this section might show that the number of countries or regions is 0.
