Reasons why your app could be rejected by Apple and how to make a comeback

Written by on Wednesday, January 22nd 2020

You’ve worked so hard to create your beautiful app and followed all the tips given in the how to make an app guide, and in your opinion it is flawless... but then Apple informs you that they have rejected it.

Now what ? First you have to understand exactly why your app has been rejected, and then you need a game plan for what to do next.

As of today, not following Guideline 2.1 Performance - App completeness is the main cause of rejection. 
It causes 40% of the rejections by the Apple review team. 

“2.1 App Completeness
Submissions to App Review, including apps you make available for pre-order, should be final versions with all necessary metadata and fully functional URLs included; placeholder text, empty websites, and other temporary content should be scrubbed before submission. Make sure your app has been tested on-device for bugs and stability before you submit it, and include demo account info (and turn on your back-end service!) if your app includes a login. If you offer in-app purchases in your app, make sure they are complete, up-to-date, and visible to the reviewer, or that you explain why not in your review notes. Please don’t treat App Review as a software testing service. We will reject incomplete app bundles and binaries that crash or exhibit obvious technical problems.”

According to Apple, the following 10 reasons are the most common causes of rejection from Guideline 2.1 
They can be divided into 2 categories: metadata rejections and binary rejections
