April 2020 and COVID19/Coronavirus is here, and Apple gives you a bit of extra time to change the app specifications required for the App Store, especially the App Update Approval and new apps:
We greatly value the worldwide developer community, and appreciate your commitment to making a difference in people’s lives through the power of technology. To accommodate developers who may need additional time to update their existing apps on the App Store, the deadline for adhering to the requirements below has been extended to June 30, 2020.
Apps for iPhone or iPad must be built with the iOS 13 SDK or later and use an Xcode storyboard to provide the app’s launch screen.
iPhone apps must support all iPhone screens and all iPad apps must support all iPad screens.
Apps for Apple Watch must be built with the watchOS 6 SDK or later.
Apps that authenticate or set up user accounts must support Sign in with Apple if required by guideline 4.8 of the App Store Review Guidelines.
Apps in the Kids category must be in full compliance with guideline 1.3 and guideline 5.1.4. of the App Store Review Guidelines.
Apps using HTML 5 must be in full compliance with guideline 4.7 sections 4, 5, and 6 of the App Store Review Guidelines.

How to implement these changes? Good news! Just upgrade your WebView app project to the latest WebViewGold version which uses the newest technology instead of old APIs and SDKs. This app template is built for the future. There you go:
- Download the WebViewGold app template for iOS 13+ here.
Or book our full all-inclusive WeSetupYourWebViewApp service.
- Done! Just resubmit, and this time Apple will accept it 🙂
Cheers, and enjoy!
