Reasons 2.23: Apps must follow the iOS Data Storage Guidelines or they will be rejected 3.3: Apps with names, descriptions, screenshots, or previews not relevant to the content and functionality of the App will be rejected ----- 2.23 -----
We found that your app does not follow the iOS Data Storage Guidelines, which is required per the App Store Review Guidelines.
In particular, we found that on launch and/or content download, your app stores 2.04MB. To check how much data your app is storing:
- Install and launch your app - Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > Manage Storage - If necessary, tap "Show all apps" - Check your app's storage
The iOS Data Storage Guidelines indicate that only content that the user creates using your app, e.g., documents, new files, edits, etc., should be backed up by iCloud.
Temporary files used by your app should only be stored in the /tmp directory; please remember to delete the files stored in this location when the user exits the app.
Data that can be recreated but must persist for proper functioning of your app - or because customers expect it to be available for offline use - should be marked with the "do not back up" attribute. For NSURL objects, add the NSURLIsExcludedFromBackupKey attribute to prevent the corresponding file from being backed up. For CFURLRef objects, use the corresponding kCFURLIsExcludedFromBackupKey attribute.
For more information, please see Technical Q&A 1719: How do I prevent files from being backed up to iCloud and iTunes?.
It is necessary to revise your app to meet the requirements of the iOS Data Storage Guidelines.
----- 3.3 -----
In addition, your marketing screenshots do not sufficiently reflect the app in use, which does not give the user an accurate understanding of what the app does, as required by the App Store Review Guidelines.
We’ve attached the relevant screenshot(s) for your reference.
It would be appropriate to revise your screenshots to demonstrate the app functionality in use.
If your iTunes Connect Application State is Rejected, a new binary will be required. Make the desired metadata changes when you upload the new binary.
For discrete code-level questions, you may wish to consult with Apple Developer Technical Support. When the DTS engineer follows up with you, please be ready to provide:
- complete details of your rejection issue(s) - screenshots - steps to reproduce the issue(s) - symbolicated crash logs - if your issue results in a crash log
