Introduction With over 2.2 million apps available for download, the App Store is an overcrowded market. The rising number of apps across different genres have made it hard for any new players to get succeed. Another nail in the coffin is the Cupertino Company Apple has tightened its norms for approval of the apps. It is really frustrating for an iOS app development company that after integrating the best-in-class features, vigorous testing, following every possible standard, and putting a lot of efforts, your app gets rejected. In fact, many iOS app developers apply the same manner to develop an iOS app, and Apple’s stringent guidelines make it increasingly difficult to get your app approved on the App Store.

Ten reasons responsible for rejection of custom iOS app Breach of Guidelines Well, this is the first and foremost reason for your app’s rejection. It is better to read and follow the guidelines during the development process itself. It is not advisable to maneuver your app to meet the guidelines after development. Such an alteration can result in a complete mess. Using Apple’s Name Yes, this is another big reason for rejection! If you use trademarks, app names and content containing Apple’s name in your app without prior permission, your app would immediately throw into the rejection zone. The company is so strict for using images like iPhone icons, Polaroid-like image frames or related thing without its permission that it does not even give you a chance for evaluation.

Performance Issues Apple is very much focused on features and performance. Its fanboys just hate the slow apps with performance glitches. And therefore, the App Store immediately rejects such apps that fail to engage the users. The speed and functionality matter more than appearance when it comes to custom iOS apps. No Notification for Internet Access If your app cannot run without the Internet it should notify the user. Apps that require the Internet access and on failing to detect the network, they should send a notification through a pop-up message. You need to ascertain that this feature is included in your app and the users can easily see it.

Lack of Proper Testing Any single bug, malfunction, or any glitch can be a cause of app rejection. If you want to see your app live on the App Store, it is better to test it across various iOS devices for performance. The testing with the cutting-edge tools can help developers find the bugs and as a result, you can get a seamlessly running app. Integration of Own Payment System These days, many app owners opt for app monetization. Whether your app is a paid app or having an in-app purchase for using all the features, you must integrate the Apple purchasing system for the payment. It is illegal to use any other payment sites and if anyone does so, their app gets rejected automatically from the Apple store.

Copyright Issues Apple hats copycats! The App Store executives waste no time in rejecting the imitative apps. It is, therefore, wise not to copy any apps. Usually, the iPhone app developers tend to imitate the chartbuster apps while developing UI, but, it can be a reason for rejection. Complications Any app’s primary objective is to make life and work of the users easier. If apps are not convenient and user-friendly, chances are fairly high that the App Store will reject them. If your app lacks in providing simple navigation and easy-to-use features, you need to work on it.

It Looks like a Website Even if your app is based on the existing website, it should not look like a web version. In other words, you need to ensure that you upload an app and not the website in the package of an application. You should take care of creating an interface in line with the mobile platform by using the native code. Improper Description Last but not the least comes the description part. You need to give some time to the app description for iTunes once your app is ready to deploy. The app reviewer will read it first to get an idea about your application, and therefore, it needs to be as accurate as possible. Avoid any ambiguity and generic stuff. Do not try to give any false information or hide necessary information to mislead the app reviewer.

Concluding Remarks You spend a lot of energy, resources, and money in developing an iOS application with user-friendly features. You can avoid the rejection by keeping these points in mind and get the reward of your efforts and a unique concept in the form of a live iOS app on the App Store.
