We'll be telling you soon a series of scenarios apps downloaded to the App Store, both for new applications and updates, had to be complied with by Apple's continued approval. You also have my article on Apple Coding that explains them in more technical detail.
The crux is that Apple (in anticipation of a new release) has decided require a series of changes to ensure the quality of development and that they are now adapting to any future service that may change the screen resolution or feature rating, among other levels
The deadline for those changes was April 30, but in light of the global trend and (we understand) developer requests themselves deadline
What rules will have to be met from June 30?
To summarize, the standards to be met can be as follows:
- Applications should created with iOS 13 SDK, which means no app can be downloaded to the App Store if it doesn't Xcode 11 or higher.
- App launch screens ( Splash screen), you must use a Storyboard for this purpose, the so-called frequency
LaunchScreen.xib. Focused screens cannot be used for individual configurations of each application.
- The IPhone and iPad apps should support all choices of all current devices and get along well with these. They should be easy to use and do not use the size of each device to "trick" a feature into one or the other.
- Apple Watch apps must be created with the watOS 6 SDK, which means that it only downloads them with Xcode 11 onwards.
- Apps that use the registration and verification service (to enter
- Apps in the Kids section must comply with all the rules established by COPPA (Children's Privacy Protection Act). Assuming, among other things, that they do not display links that remove a child from the app, not display advertising or collect any kind of analytics or identifying data
- Apps that use HTML5 in any way should comply with sections 4, 5 and 6 of the standard 4.7 App Store. Among them, do not offer access to real money games, lotteries or donations, do not include age-appropriate content for the app (or adult content) and do not offer services or digital items for sale through web windows.
All these rules should be fulfilled now from June 30, a day from when Apple will think of these changes. If our apps are incompatible, they will reject the submitted applications (whether they are newer or newer applications).
If you have any questionsPut it in the comments and I'll be happy to resolve it.
