Before submitting to Apple App Store – Watch this

Learn iOS development here:

In this video, I would like to share my experience with iOS app submission and process. With apple, process in manual and takes too much time. Rejection at first time is very normal and expect that they may give some bizarre reasons to reject your app.

Download app from Google play store and Apple App store

  1. I uploaded the expo project to the app store. Accepted by the app store. I download the application to my phone, but after a while, the design breaks down. There is a suitable design that I share on the Android side, why can this be?

  2. My app got rejected because i had google signin and they wanted apple signin to. Next time it got rejected because i had apple signin and google signin both and not a skip login button. Wtf is this why cant they review at once . I needed to restructure my whole app. Now i am trying to cram there so called guideline which changes frequently

  3. This is the gospel! God wants you to repent (to turn away from and stop doing) of your sins (lying, stealing, cussing, looking at women with lust, using God’s name in vain, and so on) and put your trust in Him! “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
    Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” -2 Corinthians 5:17-21! God loves you soooo much!

  4. Hey, Hitesh… I am facing from India and I am facing an issue in enrolling into apple developers program. The issue is in the payment section. Can you please tell me which banks credit card(Visa or MasterCard) you used to enroll into the apple developer account and also let me know the name of the bank. Thankyou waiting for your prompt reply!

  5. Would you buy an iPhone with all features working perfectly except one ? Would you accept the offer if apple says, take this iPhone home, check if its other features are working fine ? Your answer will be why should I waste my time ? So why should apple waste its resources on an app if it was already rejected on one aspect. I can reply your other complaints as well but try to understand their perspective as well.

  6. If you actually go through privacy policies, those are the rules to protect the user. Basically, even if it’s a free app, if you’re tracking using google analytics and such, the privacy laws require you to not tag any personal information to the data you are collecting. So I understand that you want to remarked to purchased students, but that remarketing should be handled by the system where the system or yourself or admins cannot track the purchased users personal details. Say Anna buys your course, you or your app can collect any data related to Anna but the identifier should protect Anna. You must not be able to figure out personal details of your tracked user. That’s evasion of privacy according to the laws. You probably know this now

  7. Sir, I am new to the apple developer program. I purchase a membership with 99 dollars. Apple says to wait 2 days to activate your dev account. but now the 10th day I wait for the apple mail but they did not do any response. I don't know what I do. please suggest some valid suggestion.

  8. Who knows how to avoid rejection on a catalog's app company (As main functionality), what can I do to add the necessary functionality to be accepted by apple?. Thanks in advance

  9. Fck Apple! Apple Review team rejected the Application with the reason
    "We noticed that your app uses a third-party login service but does not offer Sign in with Apple. "
    Where is the fucking logic???

  10. I hate Apple. Just to get an Apple developer account it took more than a month. They and their stupid excuses. Getting our app to the Playstore was like just a couple of hours process and a week for review. And then you are done. This video was made in 2017 and they are still the same.

  11. For Christ sake, is so paintfull when i have to deal with Apple things. I did 4 apps for iPhone and more than 10 for Android just because not worth some times do all that submitting process. Google is much better dealing with developers, have more support and, even with all this Androids versions out there, is so much easier to create things because Google has this legacy code that provide support even when you create something for olders devices.

    Apple doesn't give a f-ck about developers and the community. They can decide tomorrow to remove some new feature that they just put on the current IOS version and, just like that, your app not gonna make to the end of the proccess until you go all the way back and remove some code or make some changes.
    To be honest i always have a feeling that Apple dont want to allow news apps on App Store. They just want to put their own apps and some of the most popular to shine. RIP Apple.

  12. Awesome tip Hitesh — Many thanks!. I've been always following your videos. On the side note though, please place your mic on the side where it does not create the shadow on your monitor!

  13. hello I create complete apple developer account enrollment, and they sent me a mail. My account ready with in 2 days, now today is third day but i did not receive any email.
    what can i do now?

  14. Quick question: if i create a website where you can purchase things. Then i create an app where you have to log in to basically use the things. does apple allow that or will they try to milk me

  15. Hitesh you are only criticising apple review process, Apple has very strong guidelines so that you can push good quality app, Android is lacking but gradually they are also start following apple. User’s personal data you can not transfer to third party, see HIPPA guidelines.

  16. I have made an ios app for a website which is a news website showing various articles. I made it using web viewer and added two bottom navigations and submitted to apple store but they rejected it saying it is showing white screen because of website loading time…
    So I added an arrangement with loading animation and set the web viewer invisible for 7-10 seconds till it loads completely and then hides the loading arrangement and set visible to web viewer…

    but still, they are saying now that the app has minimum functionality

    I have 3 apps with the same things which are rejected…
    I used thunkable X version to make this app

    Design – Minimum Functionality
    Your app provides a limited user experience as it is not sufficiently different from a mobile browsing experience. As such, the experience it provides is similar to the general experience of using Safari. Including iOS features such as push notifications, Core Location, and sharing do not provide a robust enough experience to be appropriate for the App Store.

    Next Steps

    To resolve this issue, please revise your app to provide more robust user experience by including additional native iOS functionality.

    If you cannot – or choose not to – revise your app to be in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines, you may wish to build an HTML5 web app instead. You can distribute web apps directly on your web site; the App Store does not accept or distribute web apps.

    For more information about creating web apps, refer to the Configuring Web Applications section of the Safari Web Content Guide.

    For a description of the HTML elements and attributes you can use in Safari on the iPhone, check out Safari HTML Reference: Introduction.

    Guideline 2.1 – Performance – App Completeness
    We discovered one or more bugs in your app when reviewed on iPad running iOS 13.2.2 on Wi-Fi.

    Specifically, the app opens to a white display.

    Next Steps

    To resolve this issue, please run your app on a device to identify any issues, then revise and resubmit your app for review.

    If we misunderstood the intended behavior of your app, please reply to this message in Resolution Center to provide information on how these features were intended to work.

    For new apps, uninstall all previous versions of your app from a device, then install and follow the steps to reproduce the issue. For updates , install the new version as an update to the previous version, then follow the steps to reproduce the issue.


    For information about testing your app and preparing it for review, please see Technical Note TN2431: App Testing Guide.
