As an iOS developer, the ultimate goal is to have your app in the App Store. But getting it approved isn’t always a walk in the park.
Increase your chances of getting your app approved by knowing the 4 most common reasons why apps get rejected by apple:
The app is full of bugs
Apple only approves apps that are complete, functional, and ready to be used and downloaded by users. This means apps should perform exactly as they should and do not crash or lag.
Not enough information about the app
Make sure to provide all the app information including instructions on how to set it up, the hardware it should be paired with, and a video demonstration so that the App Review team can check precisely if the app works as you claim.
Incomplete or misleading metadata information
Metadata is the information that appears on the App Store page before users download your app.
Incomplete or misleading metadata information can lead to the disapproval of your app.
The app has privacy violations
Mobile apps should have private policies indicating what user information is collected and how it will be used.
Apple also requires developers to only request user information that is relevant to the app functionality.
