Hello All, Its been a while, since I am away from my blogs. I hope I have not missed much !
Today, I will take you through a situation where you have a iPad Application or a iOS application with Universal device support (iPhone & iPad) and you want to create an archive and upload the build to the Apple iTunes Connect Build repository for app review.
Well, since few months back, Apple has changed the policy to review the applications that you have built. It now also undergoes into the processing stage, where, it will check if all the required attributes for the application is available on the Info.plist file.
I had recently tried to upload my iPad app on the Apple iTunes Connect portal for app review. And while undergoing the process of uploading an app to the iTunes Connect portal, I encountered these error messages:
After researching for a while, I found that I am missing a attribute to add into the Info.plist file for allowing the application to know, if it supports multitasking or not. Presumedly, it is for the new iOS 9 feature for iPads which allows a split screen view for multi-tasking.
So, what do we do now?
Open the Info.plist file, and add the UIRequiresFullScreen attribute to it and specify the type to BOOLEAN and specify True or False, depending upon your app’s requirement.
Then you can archive and upload to the Apple iTunes Connect portal for app approval.
Bare in mind, the app also undergoes a stage, where it simply shows the status as (Processing). And it will be there, until you upload a new build version with all the applications’ required attributes to be added into the Info.plist file.
I had few of them in the builds section in iTunes Connect with incomplete attributes, and it will lie there for now 🙂
